Do you remember when I shared on THIS post that I get the privilege of working with one home owner for a Lowe’s Fall Makeover?? Lowe’s is such a great company to come up with this makeover idea. We have selected the home owner for this project and have contacted them. I am sorry if you were not selected and you took the time to apply. I would have loved to work with everyone who applied! Such great applications and such heart warming people and stories were shared. The project that was selected is a mudroom that has unfinished walls and in need of some organization for a growing loving family.
Before I start any project or work with any client I ask them to share some inspiration pictures with me. We aren’t looking to copy the room, just to be able to get a feel for the style and look they are drawn to. One great way to share pictures or to get inspiration is on Pinterest or in magazines. I like to start a new “board” to “pin” images to for a new project, basically an inspiration board but online. The homeowner I am working with told me that she actually started new “boards” when she moved into their home. She labeled each board for each room in her home. So she already had a mudroom inspiration board that I could look at. It was great to see that she kept “pinning” images that all had the same type of feel and style. I thought I would share some of her inspiration images with you and some of mine. I consider these the Top Mudroom Ideas, believe me I have went though a lot of images to find the best!
You have to look closely, but when you do you will notice so many details. I love that a mudroom can be functional and yet so stylish. Source
This mudroom/laundry room is timeless. That is exactly what I am wanting to create. (Source)
The shiplap is such a great source for a wall treatment in a mudroom. (Source)
This floating shelf is such a unique idea! I also love the natural wood feel against the white walls. (Source)
The lighting, the shiplap, the black door, the ceiling, the painted lockers are all such great inspiration. (Source)
This space is dreamy. That dutch door is just perfection along with the gold accents. (Source)
Another dutch door and love the brick flooring. (Source)
I noticed that a lot of the inspiration photos had this slate floor that was installed in a herringbone pattern and light grout. I love this look too! (Source)
You will start to notice trends in your inspiration photos. One trend I noticed in the homeowners Pinterest board for the Lowe’s Fall Makeover was that she selected photos that had pattern added in some way. So we will for sure be adding some pattern in a fun way! Stay tuned for another update of what we have coming for the Lowe’s home makeover! (Source for above images)
