A Bright Spot
It was a daring move, but painting cabinetry a sunny yellow pushed this mudroom into the fun zone—and don’t we all need more of that? Thanks to designer Emily Fuhrman’s creativity, this room is more than just a pretty space. Family-friendly design packs every inch including a bench upholstered in high-performance fabric from Perennials, porcelain flooring that mimics parquet, and surprisingly washable vinyl wallpaper.
For a family with six children and two dogs, the mudroom is the hardest working room in the house. Interior designer Tori Legge made sure this room checked all the organization boxes and reflected the homeowner’s sophisticated design aesthetic. While the rest of the home features bright white walls, here, high-gloss navy blue sets a stylish tone—and it’s impervious to dirty hands and wagging tails.
