Simple built-in to create a mudroom and/or storage anywhere from an entry, to kids room or in a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Put drawers under bench or have the seat lift up to store things.
I think the antlers, teak coloured wood and grey tweed give masculinity here and balances out the duck egg blue. Also, I think monochrome textiles and industrial style lighting works. I'd go bolder with the accessories than what they have here tho!
