This mudroom features gingham flooring, watercolor wallpaper and white cabinetry.

If You Can’t Buy It, DIY IT

Designer Jo Gick turned her mudroom into the ultimate DIY hub—and it looks awesome. A vintage fixture lights up the brand-spanking-new space, while a 10-lite pocket door painted navy (Parisian Night by Dunn-Edwards) offers a view into the cute pantry. Joe also created her own wallpaper: “A watercolor artist I found on Etsy designed this pattern, then I had it made by Spoonflower,” she tells HGTV Magazine. Finally, she had cement tiles in solid blue, gray and white laid to make the fun gingham floor.
