Why This Works: A Sunny Mudroom

Ever look at a beautiful room and wonder how did they do that – and, more importantly, how can I do something similar at home? We break down how to create a mudroom that feels equal parts fun and functional.

Adore your door. Painting your front or side door not only welcomes guests, it creates some serious curb appeal too. This Farrow & Ball shade is Drawing Room Blue and feels both classic and eye catching.

Mix patterns like a pro. If the thought of mixing and matching makes you feel faint, try working in one color palette while varying the scale of the patterns. Here, the horizontal stripes on the rug looks perfect paired with small scale shapes on the wallpaper.

Clean less. An indoor/outdoor rug holds up to dirt and muck much better than a vintage option, plus it’s a cinch to clean when you have to.

Get smart seating. Not only the perfect place to sit while putting on a pair of boots, this bench’s design is pretty ingenious too. Its multi leg style creates the look of cubbies, so it’s a nice spot to tuck away shoes and still have them look organized. Pillows on top make it feel cozy and welcoming.

Sneaky extra storage. It doesn’t always have to look purely practical. A floating shelf with hooks plays host to stunning artwork and a plant too, giving you a spot to hang your coats that also adds color and style.

Don’t downplay useful accessories. In need of a coat or umbrella stand? Why settle for boring shade that blends in when you can add color. We love the bold orange of this umbrella stand, it makes organizing feel downright cheerful.
