A Pink Mudroom & New Floor

I know what you might be thinking after reading the title of this post.  What?!!  Another mudroom post?!!  Yes, I went and gave our mudroom another little update. You probably think I am totally nuts to be updating this space yet again, but it all started with some leftover stone 12" x12" stone tile in the garage.  With the messy parts of our basement renovation finished (YAY!!!), it was finally time to tackle the floor by our back door (the most direct route to the basement from outside).  The floor in the mini mudroom before was dingy ripped up linoleum.  I tried to hide it with a rug for the most part, but if you looked closely it was pretty bad.  I ended up going with a herringbone design for the new tiles and am really happy with how it turned out.  After the floors were finished I felt the space needed some colour and I was thrilled when Hubby didn't object to pink!  
The colour is called Pink Ground and it is so pretty.  Definitely not a bubblegum pink, but a perfect, muted, blush colour.  
Here's a look at the tile work Hubby and I did.  We cut the 12" x 12" tiles in half to create the rectangular pieces.  I chose to go with a lighter grout to emphasize the herringbone pattern.  This was definitely a more time consuming way to lay tile because of all the extra cuts, but since the space is so small it was definitely doable.  There was a little bit of a concern that we didn't have enough tile to complete the job, but we ended up having just, barely enough.  I think we had a quarter of a tile left as waste!

Technically this space isn't totally finished.  I still haven't touched up the trim that has been scuffed up numerous times when bringing building materials down to the basement, but I am really enjoying the new tile floor and pink wall.  I bought a whole gallon of this beautiful paint so now I'm looking for another wall or two to paint pink!


  1. So beautiful. I love the floor pattern!

  2. Loving the color! I've been looking for the perfect blush paint for my daughter's guest room - one that doesn't scream pink - and I think I just found it. Thanks!

    1. I'm glad you like the colour. Farrow and Ball paint is really lovely. It has a really nice depth to it.

  3. This is the most beautiful mudroom ever. Love the pink so so much!
