Tips for Cool Breakfast Nooks

Make it interesting

This is a chance to stamp your personality on a small, unique space. Let your imagination go wild and design something that you love.

Don’t be afraid of tiny spaces

Make a small, cozy breakfast nook in even a cramped space. You might find that a tiny spot is ideal for getting away from it all each morning.

Put it next to a window

Place your breakfast area next to a window if you can. This will make it bright and sunny or moody depending on the weather.

Use an interesting theme

This is a great opportunity to use a theme that you may be wary of trying in a bigger space. A nautical or rustic look can work extremely well.

Make it bright and bold

Take a chance on bright, bold colors. Since this is usually a small space, colors that would normally be too strong are fine here.

How to Create a Breakfast Brunch Tablescape & Buffet Setting

Great ideas on how to set-up a simple but elegant breakfast brunch tablescape and buffet setting.

This privately-owned luxury bed and breakfast is nestled within the urban compound of Charlestons historic 1825

Edmondston-Alston House, one of the first dwellings constructed along the High Battery facing Charleston Harbor. 21 East Battery was built in 1825 during the tenure of the property's first owner, Charles Edmondston. Later, in 1838 second-owner Charles Alston extensively remodeled the house adding significant Greek Revival details. The rear dependency originally served as a stable and livery for the wealthy rice planter's fine horses and handsome town carriages. The quarters once housed the servants who helped make 21 East Battery one of the city's showplaces of style and gracious entertaining. Today, the property once again welcomes visitors to the city where hospitality has always been an art. Overlay Solutions LLC, was proud to have the opportunity to work on this Historical Treasure. Jody Smith said "This was the most peaceful job that I have ever completed, and to be on the Charleston battery working on history was a great privilege. I would recommend this bed & breakfast to anyone who is looking for that true Charleston get away. The carriage house layout is amazing and I love the way 21 East Battery Bed & Breakfast was able to preserved the look and feel of this priceless piece of Charleston history. I truly enjoyed the challenge of making the newly fixed areas look untouched to match the aged existing facade."
