Stuck In The Mud

Hello! I’m back! I literally left you all hanging on sconces, and for that I do apologize. Last Monday night, my temperature decided to party like it was August in Texas. Then, it never went back down. Needless to say, I had a yucky virus that was anything but chic, and put me in places where the bedding was less than sub-par. While I am on the mend, an always delightful ice storm has decided to visit Dallas making staying indoors my new norm.

The ice storm may have schools closed and given everyone excuses to bake treats, yet there are negative factors of the ice storm. Once it all melts, it turns to blackish/brownish slush that can easily navigate it’s way into the home. Cue the mud room. They exist for a purpose, normally near a side door or garage entrance.  They are life-saving in the way they can gather, organize, and maintain chaos in one single hall or nook. Besides their functionality, like all things, they can be very well decorated and received.

Don’t be a stick in the mud, start planning your next room for the dirty Loubs (I mean shoes).

Less functional and more timelessly pretty, this mud room in Caroline Scheerer’s country house is lined with riding boots and objects to admire. Via Pinterest

Perfectly narrow and full of black and white contrast. I adore the low seated wooden bench. Via Style At Home

Mud room via House Beautiful

Seamlessly uncluttered thanks to a row of custom wall cabinetry. However, the sink and skirted side counter give such a wonderful juxtaposition of country elegance (not to mention my love of dutch doors!). Designed by Garden Variety Design Via House Beautiful

Mud room in a Buckhead residence

A polished and sophisticated wall of shelving (and a bench) for a mudroom in Buckhead. The oriental rug keeps the hallway from becoming too sterile.

Clean and classic. Love the width of the cubbies and the etched compass rose into the hardware. Mudrooms can get away with being more playful and adventurous with design Via Houzz
