With an open-concept home, simply closing the door on a messy space isn't always an option. Set up areas that are typically prone to clutter, like mudrooms, so organization is second nature. Label baskets and hooks for each family member to create a seamless and more efficient routine for the entire family.
As you step inside the mudroom, a cushioned bench awaits you to sit down and take off your shoes. Hooks provide a place to hang hats, scarves and coats, and woven baskets offer an additional storage option above the bench.
Fall containers, window boxes and hanging baskets complement established plantings at this country-style home. Mums, ornamental kale and grasses, and decorative accents like cornstalks, dried flower wreaths and country-style ornaments complete the inviting harvest display.
Kristi Nelson designed this foyer featuring hardwood floors, textured wallpaper and an elliptical glass-paneled entry door. A double layer of rugs adds warmth, while the console table provides a practical place to stash your keys and the wall mirror allows you to check your look before you head out of the house.
We found these small faux pine trees at a garage sale and turned them into something special by adding new baskets, satin ribbon, handmade ornaments and yarn garland. Mini pine trees are perfect for displaying by your front door; try adding one to each side of the entry to frame the door.
The entry's custom white built-in bench includes gray velvet pillows and custom pillows in a paisley print. An open storage area below has space for storing boots and shoes, with green baskets for grab-and-go items to pick up before heading out the door.
Perfect for relaxation, this cottage has a wraparound porch with brown painted beams decorated with hanging baskets of flowers. Ornamental grasses complement the strong sloping roofline and wood detailing of this charming home.
