Marvelous Mudrooms

April showers may bring May flowers, but they also bring muddy sneakers, boots, and paws! There's a perfectly named room that takes care of that, as well as backpacks, coats, sports gear, and everything people drop as they come in the door - and that's the mudroom!

I love well-planned and well-designed mudrooms, like this gorgeous space in ever-rainy England. The standouts are the sophisticated dentil molding at the ceiling, and the gorgeous reclaimed stone floors. Very English and very classic. If a mudroom could be described as dreamy, it would be this one.

Now let’s talk about mudroom reality. For busy and/or growing families, a mudroom where everyone has a cubby for their stuff, is really a necessity. When kids are getting ready for school, or coming home from a game, there is a spot for everything and everyone knows their spot!

Now, what do you do without a dedicated mudroom at all? Get creative with hooks and shelves and turn a wall behind a door into a mini-mudroom!

I’m enamored with the idea of a mudroom/laundry room, especially with littles in the house. You can strip them down and throw their adorably grass- and mud-stained clothing right into the wash!

And if there is anywhere that needs a mudroom it’s a ski lodge, so this rustic beauty caught my eye.

We began with a dreamy mudroom, so we’ll close with an elegant mudroom. This luxurious spot meets all the mudroom needs for storage and functionality, but it’s so beautiful, I feel like I’d want to hang out in it for cocktails. And can we talk about those amazing light fixtures?
