I think one of the things that stresses me out about the holidays is the amount
of things that come IN to my house rather than go out. I admit, I have
a huge aversion to clutter - just ask my family! But I truly believe
that good design and organization can go hand-in-hand.
I have recently worked on a few mudroom/entryway designs for clients
and thought I would share them with you.
Some of my 'must haves' include:
* closed storage option (cause, duh, they hide the clutter)
* hooks - cause for some reason husbands and kids are not
good at using hangers but usually have no problem finding the hooks.
* good lighting
* a durable rug - dhurries and kilims are favorites because they
hold up to lots of coming and going and are good dirt concealers
* Inspirational words - to send your loved ones out the door!
