A boutique-inspired dressing room, complete with a plush chaise lounge, dressing table and chest of drawers is the perfect place start the day. “It’s something more than you would expect in regular homes, something a little more luxurious and special,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
Add two simple reclaimed-wood slabs, and presto! This recessed niche, just inside the backyard door, becomes a mudroom. Barker Freeman Design Office architects needed little more than the shelving and a few hooks to create an ideal setup for removing shoes and stashing flotsam. Keeping the wall color the same as in the rest of the room allows for continuity, but the paler hue on the surrounding wall helps to define the space.

Candice Olson, host of HGTV's "Divine Design," uses neutral slipcovers to create cozy, kid-friendly seating in this playful basement.

Style and function seamlessly combine in this laundry room. Polished granite countertops provide a beautifully durable work surface, and a stainless steel, single-bowl sink is just as functional for hand-washing laundry as it is for freshening up.
This laundry room takes advantage of natural sunlight streaming through a tilt-and-turn window, which offers serene side yard views. A vibrant shade of coastal blue on walls is a fun way to jazz up an otherwise utilitarian space.
