Mudroom and entry eye candy

February 15, 2013

You know how much I love black interior doors. I loved Megan’s dark gray door:

The gorgeous stairway and beautiful settee don’t hurt at all either! ;)

Sarah shared a spring tour of her beautiful home:

I’ve always been a fan of her home. So pretty!

Brandi made some simple updates to her mud/laundry room that I loved – especially the painted door:

I am a sucker for a door with a window, especially in a mud room. Brandi’s simple changes make the space function well, but the room still looks great! My favorite combo. :)

Christina shared how she made this lovely dried hydrangea wreath:

It was so simple and I love how full it is – it looks so pretty on the back of her door with the burlap ribbon! (Love that dresser, the lamps and the light fixture too.)

OK, I know many of us love bright white cabinetry and built ins, but I can appreciate a beautiful dark piece too, and I think I said “Wow” out loud when I saw Julie’s gorgeous mud room:

Isn’t that fabulous?? LOVE that wall color and the houndstooth bench cushion is the perfect finishing touch.

I loved all the color Mandy used in her foyer, and the well done gallery wall:

And those front doors? My dream doors. Double glass-paned doors. Dreamy.

Cristina used some reworked some kitchen cabinets and put them in her mud/laundry room for added storage:

She also made it another useful space – it serves as a bar/butler’s pantry kind of space too. She’s brilliant. And handy.

I loved every bit of Pam’s foyer – it’s just so pretty and well put together:

Love the pair of chairs sitting there.

Anna made a smaller foyer work for them, with hooks and awesome shoe storage from IKEA (I love that thing!):

Love the frames hung up high over the tall board and batten.

And finally, but certainly not least, I loved Kelly’s whole mudroom space and it’s coastal theme:

Those oars are awesome, right? She got them from Etsy and finished them herself! I thought for sure they were vintage. And I love what she used to make those pillows too, click over to find out. ;)

Tara’s home tour was just lovely and her foyer is so beautiful:

Doesn’t that just feel so cozy and welcoming? I love it.

Jaime’s mudroom underwent a little redo with paint and a few little details:

Again, it wasn’t a big reno, but little projects like paint and hooks that make the difference here. Love her door with the window too. You can check it all out here.

You know how much I love my black interior doors! I have always loved the look of a gray door too – Sarah shows just how good they can look:

Again, you guys wow me! **As always, please visit the respective sites if you’d like to pin these images.

  1. Awww! Thanks for including my mud room, Sarah! Can't wait to see your powder room finished!

  2. Hey Sarah - Thanks for featuring my little foyer. The photo reminds me that I haven't made much progress since that last progress shot :) Must get on that.

  3. Such beautiful foyers and mudrooms! Wow! I was really loving Crystal's blue door, too. I would have never thought of that - you always see white, black, cream or some neutral. She's awesome! I also really loved Anna's pretty rug in front of her door - just love all the swirls to liven up the area. I'd love to know where she got it.
    Great job, ladies!

  4. All of those entry ways are SO goregous! I love the gallery wall on the one with the beautiful doors!


  5. I am crushing hard on the blue door too... it's perfect! I always see black, but I now think blue is better! We need to look at doing something in our foyer and this post is perfect... gets the thoughts rollin'. :)

  6. Great ideas!! Laundry rooms should be inviting and warm . We spend so much time there. I didnt get a chance to post mine. We did it on a low budget!

  7. I am loving all of those. I would love to paint the inside of my front door black, and the sides white. The front is dark green, guess that would work. I will do it if I ever get the foyer painted.

  8. Such awesome features...thanks LOTS for including my board and batten! XO, Aimee

  9. Those are some gorgeous foyers!! I don't have a foyer in my house... but I love the style of all of these!!

  10. These are all so beautiful! I love all the creativeness.

  11. My entry is akin to a dead end alley, except for the door that leads outside. It's annoyed me since I bought the house, but these ideas are so exciting I think something might help it pop for me.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  12. Wow, that double glass-paned door and foyer are magnificent! Thank you so much for including my mud/laundry room among such great features!

  13. I've been in Seattle for the week and I'm just now catching up on my blog reading. What a wonderful surprise to see my stenciled entry featured! Thanks for having such a great blog and being an inspiration :)


  14. Just got back from a week of vacation to see you featured my nautical mudroom! What a great surprise/welcome back :) Thanks so much!
    PS I'm totally crushing on that blue door too!
