Because this family uses the mudroom
more than the entryway, Keller/Eaton Architects wanted it to feel as cozy and warm as the front door. They placed a center island for quick grocery and school backpack drop-off, a warm fireplace to heat up cold feet on winter days, and a collection of vintage lockers to bring in an old-school feel—making the mudroom both functional and stylish. The architect’s favorite element is the three-story floating staircase, which filters light from the large window behind it.

What was once a drab, split-level entry is now a beautiful nod to Craftsman style. This entry renovation worked entirely within the existing structure of the house and features custom built-ins and interior finishes that transformed the space. Architect Daniel Contelmo worked closely with the owners on each design decision. “They were wonderful to work with and opened up a different and welcome sense of style,” says Contelmo. The finished product is a path filled with beautiful details and thoughtful transitions.
