This mudroom has space for everyone to take their boots off...and then some! Two long benches line either wall and there's a bench island in the middle. Handy cubbies and drawers give everything a place.
Susan Brunstrum not only added an elegant style to this Park City, Utah vacation home, but she solved storage problems as well. In this mudroom, she situated a rustic bench for shoes and hung eight small "antler" hooks on the wall for purses, bookbags and jackets.
A graffiti wall, mounted animal skull, leather bench and Space Age barber shop chairs bring character to this eclectic home bar. The curved custom bar features a rustic wood base juxtaposed with modern lighting.
A modern bedroom shines with blue accents in the custom blue velvet headboard by Parker Kennedy Living, the pillows on the footboard bench and the gallery wall. Neutral printed curtains drape around the windows while a painting hangs above a metallic miniature chest.
With a picturesque backdrop, little is required to create a party setting. Many parks or outdoor venues provide picnic tables and long benches or chairs. To add glamorous touches to your picnic, cover the table with a colorful fabric like this suzani print and layer it with a solid white tablecloth. A Moroccan wedding blanket or cozy throw on each bench creates a warm, comfortable place for guests to dine.
A movable fire bowl nestled into newly established colonies of bayberry, winterberry and fern extends the use of a Maine garden beyond dusk. Slabs of lichen and moss-covered granite are used as benches and form a firewood crib. The property is
within Acadia National Park along the west edge of Somes Sound on Maine’s Mount Desert Island. Matthew Cunningham Landscape Design won an American Society of Landscape Architects award for the entire project.
