Worn Wood Bench In Mudroom

Posted on | January 2, 2012 | 11 Comments

Derby Hill Farm Lyme NH traditional entry

I came across this mudroom photo last night on Pinterest. The colors, beadboard, floor and bench caught my eye. The green is so pretty and reminds me of my beloved Farrow & Ball Verte De Terre in my den. But maybe a bit warmer and closer to Cooking Apple Green? The worn seat bench could be salvaged on a custom base—I love the different compartments for boots. The floors look terra cotta, right? So pretty and warm.

The mudroom is from Smith & Vansant Architects portfolio featuring a house in Lyme, New Hampshire. You can find more photos of the house on Houzz.com and on the firm’s website.

    Love the millwork as well!

    I have issues with shoes at the front door in my own house. Meaning, they’ve taken over. And our mudroom is clearly not working the way it should. But this space is beautiful.

    Thanks, Katy. Enjoy your blog!

    If I did something like this I might think about putting baskets or pull out drawers below the bench to organize shoes, hats etc. But I do like how light and airy the benches feel as is.

    I love Pinterest! Loads of beautiful images… so much inspiriation.

    The combination of soft colours against the terracotta floor works perfectly.

    I love your site! It’s so attractive and restful and creative. We used to live in Manchester, MA and I loved being near the sea.
    Glad to discover your site and look forward to more postings.

    So glad to have come across this site. Collecting ideas for me and my boyfriends house and we actually have a huge entry way we can do this too! Can’t wait for the construction to begin. I want to do the exact picture; down to the green bead board on the wall and the old wooden bench!
