In my October Photography Challenge post this morning for “From Up High“, I shared a photo of our mudroom from above.
When you first come in our front door, you are greeted by our staircase. It isn’t the most ideal feng shui situation, but we’ve followed a couple rules to try to help with the flow of energy here. We’ve created a mudroom/landing area to help move the energy away from the door and leaving our home.
Looking directly over to your left, you see our Hemne shoe cabinet from Ikea. For the moment, she is stylized with a hand embroidered piece of framed art we got from Vietnam, a ceramic bowl wedding gift, and some faux flowers for color.
For better flow of energy we added a house plant. House plants are alive. So they give off energy. This will help to give us energy flow into the home. We also have a small geode to help reflect and scatter the energy back around the entrance. This is suppose to help keep the energy that flows down to the door from leaving our home.
Lastly, we have a small antique stool that we bought from the Davis Square Flea Market this summer. We sit on this little stool each morning to put our shoes on and each evening to take our shoes off. Perfect for this tiny little space.
Still on the To Do List for this space:
- paint to match the upstairs
- put up the coat rake
- get umbrella holder
- a basket to hold gloves in the winter
- a mirror for last minute face check before leaving
- pretty doormat
- boot tray for winter
- hang art piece on wall
Do you have any other must haves in a mudroom that we should consider for this super small space?
