Practical spaces with style

Back to school? Busy schedule? Herding family members in different directions? Be prepared. The morning rush can be less chaotic when there’s an organized place for everything you need to get out the door. Limited space? Not a problem.

We’re all mini “Marie Kondos” here at Terracotta, in that we love to create spaces that bring you joy. Giddy best describes our feelings when we have the opportunity to design practical spaces that are not just functional but more importantly, STYLISH. Even the smallest of laundry rooms can have loads of potential. 😉 Here’s a few of our favorite mud rooms/cupboards, laundry rooms, home office niches and hidden or not-so-hidden spaces with smart solutions.

Perfectly positioned at the landing, this mud cupboard was designed with handsome leather drawer pulls and metal mesh…

What stuff? Clean and modern, a built-in can hide coats, bags of dog feed and so much more.

Speaking of dog feed. Yes please.

Thank the heavens for this antique church pew providing functional seating between towers of storage.

Drop at the door. Purse, keys, firetrucks. A catch all area…Better here than the kitchen counter right? And look at that cute dutch door!

The Taj Mahal of Mud Rooms. Base camp for kids and dogs.

Super durable floors that will never go out of style makes this space the only place to wipe your paws or change your boots! 😉

Elegantly simple but enormously helpful. Office niches make takin’ care of business quick and easy.

Laundry? Wait for it.

Yes indeed.

Too. Cute.

Tucked away and well equipped, but what we really love are the accent colors and natural light.

The take away? There’s always an opportunity to design hard working utility spaces that are stylish. Spaces that are fun, with the right tools to organize your everyday needs as your families’ lives unfold. 😉


All projects by Terracotta. Many thanks to Jeff Herr for the amazing photography.
