The Dirty Lowdown on Mud Rooms

Every farm or country house needs a mud room.  I can't tell you how much I depend on mine, which we added when we renovated the farm.  Mine has brick floor and a built in bench with a cushion, racks for boots and shoes and a "tree" to hold my many coats.  It's not big, but it serves its purpose. 

You don't have to live in the country though to need or use a mud room.  There are so many stylish ones out there. Let's look a few..... and it's raining today, so it makes you appreciate one if you happen to have one where you live.

This is from the Needlepoint.com web site.  Note the lovely needlepoint pillow in the middle.  Still waiting to find the right pillows to stitch for my bench in the mudroom.  This is in a kitchen but I can see this going so well in a nice country mud room.  Love the style of the bench and the color. 

This is from The Enchanted Home (one of my favorite blogs):

This one is somewhat suburban IMHO, but functional nonetheless....love the floor...

And this one I love.  Very British, shabby chic in a good way.  Love the brick wall and the old door. This will be in style 100 years from now!

And look at all those wellies......................

Stay warm and dry.  And don't make that mud room too organized.  Clutter makes it look used and fucntional.  And stylish..
