What's a young family to do in a house without a mudroom? Easy. Make the entryway high-style and high-function with oodles of concealed storage and a few key luxury finishes. That's exactly what we did for this young family by pairing wood and stone inlaid floors with an antique dresser and artful accessories. The result is a streamlined entryway that doesn't skimp on style, and still has plenty of drawers for stashing keys, dog leashes and sidewalk chalk.
