First, I will say that I am LOVING the sunburst in the bedroom. It ties the silver finishes from across the room (chandeliers) to the sitting area. The pillows are perfect on the sofa. It seems so much more coordinated in there. Yay for playing around with the art and pillows. Sometimes a few simple tweaks can really help.
The mirror is a keeper. I do, however, need to take that price tag off of the mirror. I did update the new “Tour” page with these photos.
Now, I want to introduce you to our laundry room. It’s one of my favorite spaces in the house due to its size and the sink and storage!
I want to involve you all in this design! Here is how the laundry room looked before we moved in (previous owners). Pretty white.
When we moved in, we painted the walls apple green and added a few accessories. We went with top loading washer and dryer by Fisher and Paykal. Easy on the back.
On one wall are photos from when we lived in Utah – mainly from hikes we went on there. That wall is about 20 ft long.
Here is another shot.
I got tired of the blue stripe, the and the too square bench and mirror. So, I sold the bench and mirror.
The room now looks a little torn apart and crazy like this.
And, like this.
I will definitely paint over the blue stripes. I am considering using the symbol art work that is resting on the floor. Perhaps coat hooks on each side of the art and a floor length mirror on each end. Then, two DIY benches under the artwork. Stripes? Stencil? It’s all really just thoughts right now. I haven’t pinned anything down.
What are your ideas for the room? Leave it green? Stripes, stencil? How would you arrange the artwork? Would you include coat hooks and mirrors? My only constraints are that I cannot do a backsplash, replace countertops, or paint cabinets. Nothing major. Just decor.
Note, I do have a docking station for phone chargers, mail, receipts and so on near the door which is where the photo is taken from. And, I have the calendar on the right wall. Another good thing to note is that there is not space for a full wall length bench or shelf due to doors on each end.
I’d love to hear your thoughts! Tomorrow I will post some laundry room inspiration photos, but they are not specific to this room… just general fun laundry rooms.
Update 8/11/11: I made some 3d sketches of design ideas.
