When you live in an Old Country House
there are all kinds of quirky nooks and crannies
and butlers pantry’s
(not in mine…but someone – somewhere
has an old house with a butler’s pantry!)
…anyway, I have a bit of an obsession with built ins.
And awesome Mudrooms. With storage.
Old Houses do not have much storage.
They do have great attics, but attics can be musty and inaccessible.
I would Love a Built in…Mudroom, and maybe a bookcase..
I feel like they would make everything
all so neat and tidy and pulled together looking.
These are our Current Hallways – Upstairs and below – downstairs….
I love the both, but they have room for built ins…if I were to decide to go that route…
In both of our hallways, upstairs and downstairs, we have these long wide halls and I have always envisioned doing some kind of built in along this wall…
or this one below…
ooh ooh I could do the book case on the right and the built in on the left…
except I do so love my PEW bench…
Lets look at some beautiful built ins shall we?
okay this one is amazing and it is from “This Old House” site so it must be in an old house…
|This is amazing! I could do this…maybe. Could I?|
|Pewter and Sage|
Here are three good old fashioned built in bookcases from
Dominos Gallery of Bookcases…
|Desire To Inspire|
House of Turquoise
|Inspired Home design|
….and then there are Built in Mudrooms…
This one kills me, I could totally see it in my upstairs hall…but would I miss my hall? Course, I don’t really need an upstairs mudroom, the MUD is all downstairs.
|from House of Turquoise. This homeowner had her builder do this at the end of a renovation. ..it is perfection!|
|I have contemplated doing this above my PEW, could I get the toddler too?|
|I absolutely adore the simplicity of this…It is very ME!|

This one has a doggie bed for this guy…

What is it that is so cozy and inviting about a bookcase…?
Do you have a built in…bookcase or mudroom?
Did it come with your house. Or did you install it?
