Welcome, February, you sweet little mud-luscious month, with your cheerful flower buds, birdsong, and Valentine greetings! A new month’s arrival is always a great time to give our living spaces a little TLC, and in February, there’s no better place to start than our entryways and mudrooms. When we first arrive home, do we want to be greeted with piles of laundry, muddy boots, and stacks of mail? Probably not. But life is busy, especially when we’re coming and going, and these areas are often a neglected jumble of clutter.
So, where to begin? Along with a little organizing, entryways immediately become more welcoming with one simple addition – a great floor covering. Here at Primrose, we carry wonderful indoor/outdoor floor mats and runners from Chilewich, recently featured on Oprah’s O List. These floor coverings are easy-to-clean with slip-resistant, quick-drying surfaces that are mold, mildew, and chlorine resistant. They are made in the USA, eco-friendly, and phthalate-free.


In the words of Sandy Chilewich, the company’s founder and creative director, “Making something simply beautiful is easy. Making something beautiful as well as practical is my passion.” As we spruce up our entry areas, the concept of ‘beautiful and practical’ could hardly be more apropos!


Need some inspiration? Here’s a helpful article from Bob Vila on designing and updating entryways and mudrooms.  We hope you have a lovely February and wish you cheerful homecomings every time you walk through the door!
