Project in Process: Essex Mudroom

May 13th, 2013

Good morning. Sharing some more progress on the house in Essex as it’s starting to come together now at the tail end of construction. Our lockers are made and should be installed on site next week! We worked on the kitchen and mudroom in tandem, wanting them not to match but have a connection. I’ll post shortly on the kitchen so you can see the big picture. Here we have a quartzite tumbled floor tile that we’re laying in a herringbone pattern; working on giving it an indoor/outdoor feel. The walls are going a cool grey/taupe ┬áto provide a backdrop for a soft sea green paint color on the custom lockers. So excited!

To give the room a bit more interest we settled on these Pottery Barn canning jar lights, a 16 jar for the main space of the mudroom and a smaller 5 jar for a back door area that is smaller. The lockers themselves we have some large boat cleats as door handles (thinking they can double as a space to loop a bag over) and I am searching for some cool salvaged perforated metal for the upper and lower panels of the cabinet doors. I’ll be hitting Brimfield this weekend in hopes of getting something fun. Fred, the cabinet maker made some temporary painted flat panels for now, but I have high hopes of finding something with a nice patina on it that we can always pop in later. A couple weeks ago, when on a shopping day with the client we found this cool old screen panel that was made into a mirror for the powder room. Love that it still has copper screening in it! This past weekend my husband installed barn board (from our salvage trip up to NH a couple weeks ago) on the ceiling of the powder room that will look great with the mirror and the canning jar sconces. Will snap some photos this week to share.

Stay tuned as the cabinetry and flooring gets installed!
