Providing a transitional space between the great room and the garage, the small mudroom offers user-friendly storage solutions with a focus on coastal style and efficiency.
Creative Mudroom Solution
An old farm table with faded wood on top and distressed teal paint on the legs was cut in half long ways and affixed to the wall, to create the mudroom console table. The table provides a place to rest keys, sunglasses and other daily essentials.
Interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn says a pair of lamps with custom shades and a base made with oyster shells gives the mudroom a beachy look without being too cliche.
Woven baskets placed underneath the mudroom's console table offer storage for flip flops, towels and other items carried in and out of the home. Photos of beach life hang on the mudroom wall, bringing the coast indoors.
The mudroom includes an area for feeding pets, which helps keep the great room free from extra clutter and activity.
Hooks added to the mudroom wall provide hanging storage for swimsuits, hats and cover-ups.
Floor With Coastal Flavor
The driftwood look of the floor fits with the coastal theme, and provides a neutral backdrop for the more colorful walls and accessories.
Attached to the mudroom, this powder room is the main bathroom for guests. The walls are covered in the same beach-y shade of gray-green used in the mudroom, with a custom piece of art by David Bromstad that depicts a large silhouette of a fish.
The powders room large original mirror features a frame that resembles faded beach wood.
A three-light wall sconce above the framed mirror provides illumination for the powder room.
The user-friendly single lever faucet with an angled spout sits above the powder room's vanity with drawers and cabinets for storage of bathroom essentials.
Simple and Chic
Round glass knobs help open the powder room vanity's lower cabinets.
A tile backsplash adds a layer of texture and color behind the powder room’s white vanity and wood-framed mirror.
