HGTV Green Home 2012: Mudroom Pictures

The home's informal entrance provides a warm welcome and stylish storage options.

  • Flagstone segues to hand-scraped engineered hickory wood floors in the casual back entryway, where locker-style hickory cabinetry offers storage and an introduction to the home's industrial-chic styling.

  • Carpenter David Brown transformed an accent table into a demilune to accommodate the tight entry space. \"Oftentimes in a narrow hallway you'll find a table that's too deep. You can cut it down and attach it to the wall and have a perfectly usable piece of furniture,\" says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

  • A hand-crafted peg rail provides a handy spot to hang coats, hats and handbags.

  • The unassuming back entrance is flanked by a galvanized metal lamp that, along with lap-style fiber cement siding, expresses the Southern farmhouse style.

  • Engineered hardwood clads flooring throughout the home. The hand-scraped hickory plank in 3-, 5- and 7-inch widths lends texture and visual interest.

  • Open 21-inch-deep shelving provides a spot to display a perforated porcelain hurricane and ceramic candlesticks designed by artist Stephen Antonson.

  • A locker opens to reveal a front-loading energy efficient washer and dryer unit that accommodates empty nesters striving to live on one level of the home.

  • \"Progressive,\" a poured landscape on repurposed box wood by Decatur, Ga., artist Dustin Gilleland, was customized by the artist to match the width of the peg rail beneath it.

  • Carpenter David Brown crafted coat \"hooks\" from a wax myrtle felled in his yard.

  • The mudroom opens out to the home's main floor, which houses both the kitchen and living room.

  • The entrance to the master bedroom offers just a hint of the room's overall design sensibility.
