Any­one with chil­dren knows that stor­age is the key to a more or­gan­ised home, so when de­signer Janette Stritt of Stritt De­sign and Con­struc­tion first met the own­ers of this stun­ning new Hamp­tons-in­spired house, a mud­room and laun­dry was at the top of the ‘must in­clude’ list. The cou­ple wanted a stylish place where all fam­ily mem­bers, in­clud­ing their two young sons, could store shoes, school bags, coats and hats. It had to be sep­a­rate to the en­try, but also eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble — es­pe­cially im­por­tant given the fam­ily lives a short stroll from the beach. “They can kick off their shoes and put their sandy clothes in the wash be­fore they en­ter the house,” says de­signer Janette Stritt. Not just prac­ti­cal, this is a truly pretty space, and the de­signer cred­its her stylish clients for driv­ing the aes­thet­ics. “They knew ex­actly the look they were af­ter and had a great eye for this style,” says Janette. “The checker­board tiles bring a point of in­ter­est to the room, but at the same time the space is kept fresh and bright by the white walls and nat­u­ral light that floods through the win­dow. Since mov­ing in, our client has told us this is one of her favourite rooms — and we can see why!”
