Just off the dining room in the Gentry project house, and next to the office we showed you last week, is a casual family room and mudroom space. Considering these rooms used to be an exterior workshop, I think these spaces turned out beautifully and help this house flow SO much better!
If I were the new homeowner, this is the room where I’d put my TV and toys for the kids. It’s still connected to the living and dining spaces, but it’s also self contained enough that the rest of the house should be able to stay a little tidier! :)
In this family room space, we hung three new prints from Canadian artist Holly Young that are now available in the print shop – Collage I, Collage II & Collage III! I’m obsessed with this cut paper collage series!
The door to the garage is just to the right of this photo, so we thought a small-but-mighty mudroom area that offered closed storage, a bench with baskets and hooks for bags and backpacks would be the perfect addition to this pass-through space.
I’m super happy with how this mudroom turned out, given it is just two IKEA Pax wardrobes (we used the Grimo door)! Our contractor installed and made the wardrobes look more built-in with the addition of crown molding and shiplap using the same 8″ pine planks we used on the entry wall. Here are a couple of a progress shots:
I designed the wood bench and our contractor built it out of mahogany (the same wood we used on the mantle and the kitchen shelving). We used these petite hooks that were insanely affordable and I love the matte black finish! PS how cute is that tiny denim backpack?! I found it at Michael’s for $8!
The green linen lumbar pillow is from our pillow collection that we’re launching next week! Stay tuned! :)
