How to Design a Classic and Timeless Mudroom; Before & After
Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of my lovely client Crystal’s house (she is the owner of Studio B Yoga here in Chilliwack) I finished over a year ago, it was photographed and now it will finally be published in May. It features a timeless mudroom.
The main rooms of the house will be featured in the magazine which I can’t show you until it’s published, so I’m starting the tour by showing you the timeless mudroom which had a major transformation and became a much more functional and attractive space.
The “Before” Photos
Here’s the before photos which include the adjoining pantry. This wall was taken out and it became one room with closed cabinets and an area for coats, hats, etc. This was designed by my good friend Jan Romanuk.
The “After” Photos
After – Millwork BM Chantilly Lace
The ceiling colour has a purple undertone and it relates to the sectional in the great room this creates flow and it’s pretty fun to have a blue ceiling which always feels like the sky so it doesn’t need to relate to anything in the room.
I have a blue ceiling in my living room and people rarely notice.
Yes we could have introduced a trendy, geometric or encaustic tile, but that would eventually date. Much easier to change out the runner! The light hardwood floors are throughout the rest of the home as well.
