Locker-style Wellborn cabinetry in a light maple finish features compartments designed to accommodate ski accessories large and small.

A sink space offers a pull-down faucet and soaps to clean up after a day spent on the slopes.

A private entrance leads from the exterior to the mudroom, where guests can strip off outerwear and clean up before entering formal gathering and living spaces.

A black chest, inspired by the design of 19th-century antiques, provides additional storage space. Topped with candles, foliage and an oversized mirror, the vignette provides visual interest when viewed from the front entry.

Goggles, gloves and scarves displayed in cubbies double as decorative art in the space.

A six-arm iron chandelier adds an unexpected touch of elegance in the home's hardest-working room.

"The whole house for me is contemporary," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "It's fun, light and airy. It's not an overwhelming, dark ski house or mountain house."
