From Sunset Jan 08. A pair of 48-inch-high partitions separates the living room from the dining room.

One side of the hall has a built-in bench opposite cubbies for shoes.Design: Kevin Price, JAS Design Build, Seattle (jasdesignbuild.com or 206/547-6242) (Photo: John Granen) Entryway Ideas, Living Rooms, Built In, Builtin, Mud Rooms, Columns, Craftsman Style, Half Wall, Homes

Make this a mudroom by substituting a long entry table with a beautiful tablescape on the right side, with a shelf on bottom for shoes and a shelf above for wicker baskets of stuff you need when leaving the house. You could also add boot trays under the bench for additional shoes.
I love the darker mantlepiece above the white bench. Pegs in the same stain unify the look. Bench would have to have storage cubbies underneath to be useable.
Pretty and inviting:) This pin gave me the idea (event hough it's not actually part of the space) to do a sign facing you when you come in my front door that says "hello and welcome" and one facing you when you leave that says "Goodbye, come back soon!"
