The same signature blue color used on the kitchen cabinetry spills over into these neighboring rooms. A chic mud room leading to the garage is a catch-all and provides customizations for all of the homeowners’ needs. Here, a small built-in office nook gives way to traditional coat and shoe storage before transitioning to a lakeside living necessity – life jacket storage.
The home’s laundry room, one door over, repeats many of the colors, textures, and materials of the mud room. Printed porcelain tile runs throughout, and an apron-front sink adds a dose of character. A custom dog kennel is covered with a stylish metal grate, and food and water bowls are hidden just out of sight.
“When it came to the laundry room, we really needed it to do a lot of different things. Because they are right on the lake, the homeowners wanted a commercial ice maker, but they still had plenty of laundry to do,” says Worley. “We have open space for laundry baskets and hampers behind cabinet doors that keep the laundry organized and out of the way, but this room also stores gift wrap materials, extra serving dishes, you name it. This space is really very functional, and there’s a lot going on in this little room.”
