The HGTV Dream Home 2012 neutral mudroom is accentuated by colorful jackets and snow gear. Industrial pendant lights can be seen in the mudroom and the nearby laundry room.

HGTV fan Sassy0239 wanted to transform her contractor-grade laundry room into a stylish and feminine utility space representative of her style.

Now, she has a pretty laundry room she actually enjoys doing laundry in (kind of).
