HGTV's Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines turned this once bland laundry room into a colorful and inspiring craft room. Two bright yellow light fixtures illuminate a large craft table, made from an old pocket door. New blue-gray cabinets provide plenty of storage for the space, and an attractive sheet metal magnet board is a perfect place to display the kids' artwork.
Having an appealing spot to drop coats, shoes and other accessories as you come in the door will keep your space looking organized. Here, a cozy bench is perfect for slipping on your shoes, a coat rack holds hats, jackets and more, and baskets underneath the bench are perfect for stowing away other items.
The rough metal legs and weather-wood top on this sofa table add a touch of industrial style to this entryway. The scraped hardwood floor adds more texture while the deep blue sofa and ikat curtains provide color and softness.
To make this foyer as open and inviting as possible, walls were kept basic and neutral accented by delicate glass pendants. The space is anchored by a sturdy console table and mirror. Wall paint color: Sherwin-Williams Narce SW6154
The enchanting entry features an antique foyer table, a high-backed settee and a collection of all-white earthenware. Dark hardwood floors are topped with a knobbed area rug, while the whitewashed walls have a smooth adobe finish.
Cottage-style Neutral Foyer with Refinished Wood Floors
Removing the louvered windows above the shelves, and opening up the entry to the dining room, redefined the look and feel of this front room. Refinished wood floors and fresh paint in a warm gray help to both soften and brighten the room, that now serves as a large, contiguous entertaining space.
Wet Bar With Marine-Blue Tile and Mirrored Backsplash
Deep blue mosaic tiles surround an inset mirror in this cottage kitchen wet bar. The mirror lends the illusion of expanding the room and directs light around so that the bar doesn't become a visual dark hole.
Functioning as a foyer, this enclosed front porch sets the tone for the home. Sage green walls and linen curtains create a soft atmosphere, while neutral rugs define the two areas: the lounge area and the mudroom area.
White Cottage Sunroom With Tan Wicker Furniture and Tile Floor
This cottage sunroom is fully surrounded with floor to ceiling windows. Tan wicker furniture decorates the room. Four chairs are placed around a circular glass table, a bigger armchair with ottoman is posted in the corner, and another sitting area is behind the glass covered coffee table. A darker wicker ceiling fan and light hangs next to the skylight.
This cottage is only 650 square feet—basically one large room with a bath and kitchenette off to the side. Instead of trying to work a sleeping area into the layout, the designer opted for a Murphy bed stored vertically within the wall, and hid it behind this oversized woven walnut door.
