hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

Sorry for the delay on our fabulous mudroom tour… hopefully the technical difficulties just built up the suspense and excitement! 🙂 
So just to refresh your memory, I want an amazing mudroom, but right now it’s not on the Mangin top ten.  That doesn’t mean we can’t take a look at some awesome inspiration… Here we go!
Bright, cheery mudroom, but for some strange reason all of my kids’ clothing and accessories don’t coordinate with our wall colors?  🙂 
I don’t love the curves at the top, but I do like the white/wood combo.
Again wood and white, and this room has drawer storage as well.  Just in case everything you own doesn’t match perfectly!
I love the idea of incorporating cabinets in a mudroom.  Wide moulding at the top gives them a more custom, built-in feel.  The shoe area is super functional, but you’ve seen how many shoes we have…
How beachy and coastal is this?  LOVE it!
Cabinets again, but really I love the patterned cushion  with accent pillows and the personality that the striped wall adds.
No room for a mud room?  Some hooks will do the trick for a more “adult” household. 
Not a true mudroom, but an excellent option.  Coat hooks to the left, simple metal storage to the right.  I LOVE the painted door an numbers.  I definitely think the painted door with numbers just made the Mangin top ten list.  Stay tuned to see an garage door re-do.  Shh… just don’t tell my husband!
Just a Girl traditional entry
Chic, grownup mudroom.  This is far too pretty to be called a mudroom… it’s like the “anti-mudroom.”
This adorable mudroom was made using IKEA shelves, combined with base cabinet.  I love taking IKEA products and making them into something a little more!
Awesome cubbies.  These were created by utilizing the space between the wall studs.  This could totally be a DIY project!
And last but not least, a very classic mudroom.  Clean, crisp lines.  White paint.  All-American kid accessories.  Classic and Cute.
My dream mudroom is a combination of many of these inspiration rooms.  Although, as amazing as these are, there are a few reasons why I will never have one of these mudrooms…

1.  I have 4 kids… We will actually have mud and dirt in our mudroom.
2. My 4 kids are MESSY. They might hang up their coats, but they won’t precisely place their backpacks to look like acessories.
3. Again, for some reason all of our belongings don’t coordinate perfectly 🙂

Do any of these mudrooms thrill you? Let us know which one got your juices flowing!

  1. Love those!! Unfortunately, we don’t have a mudroom and we don’t have a garage. we have a tiny coat closet that’s beginning to overflow, but the anti-mudroom got my mind going. I’m thinking about hanging hooks on the wall right next to my back door. Along with some cubby holes for some other things. It’s a small wall, but I think that will make me keep it simple. Now I just have to get my husband on board!

  2. I dream of a house with a mudroom…because without one every room is muddy!
