Entryway Transformation

The colour red can be fun and vibrant but in this small space, the owners of this home felt that it was too overpowering for the mudroom/entry hallway of their modern townhouse. The first thing we addressed was the paint colour. We decided on a lighter, more subtle and welcoming colour – a medium grey.

In order to keep a punch of colour, we added a splash of teal and a playful cutout for the powder room door.

The  mid-century designed Eames coat hook was kept on the wall to keep with the modern feel of the mudroom.

On this wall, the hooks for the coats, backpacks and umbrellas were functional so we also kept them.  We removed the egg print and replaced it with a large vintage mirror to open up the space and make it feel larger. A wooden magnetic key holder was moved from the other wall.

In the before image, you’ll see that shoes and hats and accessories were overflowing, creating a feeling of chaos and clutter. We added a cabinet (total=$60.00) to store shoes and accessories and keep them out of sight, reducing the clutter and making the space more open and welcoming.
