jens pick, a practical + functional entry






it is the season of muddy feet, running through sprinklers, rolling in the grass, digging in the sandbox + making mud pies....so, having an entryway that is capable of capturing that little one before they trail dirty feet through the house is oh-so important. I am all about a practical, hard working entrance {..think, pretty pulling double duty....has to look good on the surface but be very practical-lots of storage, a place to sit + a space to strip off a 3 year olds clothes so they can hit a sudsy bath after a long day of playing!}

maybe today is a good day for a picnic?! {ok, well maybe another day here since it is raining this morning!-have a splendid week!}

all images House + Home.

I love the mud room {or so I'd call it!}. One day, when I have a house that I can make my own, I will have a mud room!

I'm in love with that lime green door! I'm feeling inspired to paint a door! :)

That first image has always been a favorite of mine! I've tried convincing my boyfriend that we need to paint our back door a fun/funky color, but he wont budge. Boo! Glad you found my blog--I am enjoying yours as well!
