A little shower of rain, some warm sunny rays; the long anticipated spring is finally here! So put on your rain boots and take a walk outside and don’t avoid splashing in a few mud puddles. And when you get home, focus your attention on the Mud Room. That very special place that balances a beautiful welcome with the practical side of good housekeeping; where the rubber boot prepares to hit the road, or come back home!
Bright and cheerful with a dash of folksy whimsy – the perfect combination to say “Welcome to our Home” while providing sufficient design pattern to hide puppy paw prints and the occasional muddy boot that your youngest managed to have hit the wall during a hurried removal. So serviceable too with York’s washable finish making it easy care and stress free. You’ve got to love when pretty is functional!
For many, April is the month to get back in the garden. Planning the season’s blooms, blossoms and vegetable bounty is truly a spring tonic. Fall in love with your mud room by creating an interior garden with beautiful wallpaper that surrounds the space with nature’s bounty. Select from English garden motifs or botanical studies; York has an abundance of artistically designed floral and garden designs to suit a variety of tastes.
For some, regal red is the design statement that resonates throughout the year. Warm, and rich with an underlying hint of classic good taste, it is none-the-less balanced from stuffiness with its bright primary depth that punches up the color in any room. In the mud room in particular, this color, be it plaid or paisley, emotes comfort from the second you enter in from the cold.
Neutral with a brush of formal black – always fashionable; its an easy color combination to decorate around. Choose a bench with a pretty rush seat and spooled legs painted matt black for your mud room, creating an inviting place to stop and remove your rain boots and hang up your hat. York has a lovely modern interpretation of the classic damask design, if you lean toward transitional in your style, and a pastoral toile if your personal style leans more toward updated rural.
Blue greens – from softest aqua to bold teal; this color is a crowd pleaser that has remained popular for several years running. Keep it toned soft and soothing with spa- like aqua watercolors, a big trend in wall art (both framed and wallpaper!) and soft furnishings and bedding. Or punch it up with bold stripes in deeper turquoise for vibrant style that brightens and delights.
Black and white – the modern vision. Edgy chevrons and sparkling glitter make a spectacular statement in your entryway or mud room. This color combination pairs so well with classic black and white floor tiles, keeping the area essentially clean, bright and eye catching; a lovely space to come in out of the rain!
Blissful coral: intense color with a livable soft side. There’s little wonder that this color has remained on the fashion forefront for several years running. Great depth, neither pink nor red, that instantly livens up a room with lighthearted appeal. Entryways and mud rooms are an ideal location in the home for a powerful wallpaper statement rooted in this color grouping. The stage is set for your style as soon as you walk through the door; engaging, eye stopping, and completely showy – ideal for a room that brings you through one space and into the next.
The wonderful thing about decorating today is that there is a variety of styles all trending at once, its just a matter of choosing your wall wardrobe to represent your personal style! Go to www.yorkwall.com to see all the possibilities!
