This mudroom features a custom, rust-colored backpack station. "When the kids come home, they remove any necessary notes and homework and hang their backpacks up," says the designer. "Once homework is done, it all goes back into the backpack ready for the next day."
Although most mudrooms are linear, this one by Anthony James Construction makes great use of an odd corner near the entrances to the home's garage and backyard. A wraparound bench seat features ample storage underneath, while hooks stand ready for purses, jackets, backpacks and more. The 1970s Dutch door adds a nostalgic top note.
Entryways are the first impression of any home, and this bright and colorful foyer is a fun welcome in the home. Yellow wallpaper adds a vintage feel to the space, as well as the retro photography artwork. After entering the lime green door, a set of cubbies is perfect for storing backpacks, coats and purses.
