Mud hall is the perfect term for the space in my CSIL's new home that connects the garage to the rest of the home. Originally intended as a three season porch, my CSIL and her husband had other plans for it.
The room needed to function not only as an entry and mudroom, but as an office since my brother in law works from home. The first step in the process was to figure out how to fit all of that into the not so large space.
A few measurements and a sketch later and we had a plan. Panelling would come down, new, energy efficient windows would be installed, a door to the garage added, the door into the house removed and the opening widened and most importantly, heating and cooling added to the previously unheated space.
Then the fun stuff, like a bold rug to bring in a pop of color....
A trip to Ikea netted a few organizing pieces and a stool for the "command center" and voila, the mud hall is now looking good and fully functioning.
I just love working with my CSIL, we collaborate so well. From the initial brainstorming, to the issues that come up during execution and the final details, we build off of each other's thoughts and ideas. The best part? She totally gets my creative mind and her final product is always spot on!
Do you have a friend, client or "partner in decorating crime?"
Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx.
