Elle Decor Showhouse 2010 - Kitchen and Breakfast Room by Palmer Weiss

Palmer Weiss' Breakfast Room
More Elle Decor Showhouse! What could be better? As promised, here is the beautiful Breakfast Room and Kitchen designed by Palmer Weiss. Full of fresh ideas and beautiful fabrics and materials, this space shows us there IS a new way to look at blue, white and yellow that is sophisticated and unexpected. 

Kitchen by Palmer Weiss showing Ann Sacks tile
Palmer Weiss used gorgeous Ann Sacks back splash tile above the range, and industrial chic Circa Lighting pendants over the island. Brass IS on it's way back! And this proves that one needn't worry about mixing up metals in one room. It looks beautiful.
For those of us that wan to use Carrara marble but are afraid of the maintenance...try this! Use marble subway tile on the back splash and Caesarstone for the counters. Caesarstone feels just like stone and has no maintenance issues. The look is fresh and easy.
Palmer has a way of putting in refreshing accents that keep things updated and give what could be another white kitchen character and charm.

And a little touch of wallpaper in the little hall to the back yard doesn't hurt one bit!

Does anyone know what fabric Palmer used for the curtains in the kitchen and the dining nook? I love that pattern.

thanks for bringing these to us! I LOVE that wallpaper and the chairs in the breakfast room. I like the fabric on the kitchen curtains but dont' feel they add much, would have been cleaner just with the matchstick shades.

Those yellow chairs are gorgeous. Just a curiosity, are those your pictures? Elle decor pictures? In any case thanks for the tour and looking forward to more rooms. Ciao.

ABsolutely ADORE this space - it is fresh and fun but classic and elegant at the same time. Those chairs just might be the answer to my kitchen chair dilemma - my walls are pale Farrow & Ball blue/green. AND the leather is so kid friendly.And totally agree with you - brass is definitely on a come back - and the steel or nickel mixed with it is great - think Rolex watch band. Great space!

Hi all!

I loved this sunny pretty space. The Breakfast Room Chairs wre upholstered in a shiny yellow vinyl.

Hi Brilliant Home! Yes, the photos are ones I took with my little old point and shoot!

Wish I could see the house in person, but your recaps are the next best thing. I linked to your blog in a post I just did on chairs that look like the ones Palmer uses in the Breakfast Room.

Thanks!
