Thursday, a mudroom, and Etsy

Growing up I had a mudroom in my house and I thought they were a part of every home until I started really paying attention. Turns out it is a pretty unique space because new construction favors the foyer, but in my parents' antique colonial I always liked coming into the small entry room that they kept both welcoming and functional.
If I had my druthers I would make a mudroom look something like this-

A simple welcome- canvas floor mat at the door.

A bench with pillows, not so much for lounging, but as part of your guest's first impression of your home, it is more than just a spot for pulling off your boots.

For the windows, some dressing- nothing too fussy, just simple beauty.

The only other furniture in this entry space....the all important storage and a display piece.

On the wall- making the most of every inch- mirror, shelf, and coat rack.

Graphic wall calendar (brings a new look each month) and a single amazing piece of photography rounds out the walls.
