My house, why storage trumps fancy appliances!
Updated: Apr 11
In this episode of Houzz TV Live, English interior designer Emma Merry gives a virtual tour of spaces she recently updated inside her classic Tudor home. A hardworking laundry room and mudroom features lots of custom storage, including a dedicated cabinet to store and charge a vacuum cleaner. Emma also installed a heated tow rack — typically found in bathrooms — to help air-dry delicate clothes and bedding. Wood-look tile in a chateau pattern adds style.
In the once-dark entryway, Emma replaced a wall with glass doors to bring in more light and put emphasis on several original solid oak doors with iron
hardware. Pullout drawers beneath a staircase add storage for shoes for the family of four. Wallpaper on Emma's home office ceiling and accenting one of her son’s bedroom walls give a playful touch to the elegant home.
