Several have asked that question after this post. So, what have I decided to do with the laundry room?
I haven’t decided just yet… I’ve been slowed down with some other things. But, as of the moment, I am thinking something along these lines, but I’m definitely still in brainstorm mode. I haven’t physically started on anything yet.
Let’s look back for a minute at how it is right now in case you didn’t click on the link that took you to my original discussion.
My first thought and the easiest thing was to say – I want to use this art (symbol art), I need coat hooks, I need a bench, and I need a mirror. Slap that up and call it a day. It’d look something like this.
It just wasn’t hitting the spot. A little too plain. So, how about some chair railing, a chandy, a runner rug (which would most likely have some sort of pattern), and some yellow?
Not too bad. And, it’s pretty cool to see my actual art on the wall before I really hang it. Maybe I should add a stencil?
I like that, too. I think we are getting there. I like the yellow since I’m slowly infusing it into the adjacent rooms in the form of fresh flowers, a wall clock and a few other odds and ends.
The stencil is from Cutting Edge Stencils, an etsy shop, and is their Iron Gate stencil. It’s just one of many that I could use.
Let’s view it from one other slightly different angle with a jacket hanging, and the stencil wrapped around further. The coat hooks may need to be higher. This is just an approximation, though.
What do you think? Are we on the right track? Stencil or no stencil? Now, I’m not saying I won’t come to you with a whole new design next week, but this is what is on my mind right now.
Here is the drawing without color. We’ll see how it comes to life!
Though rendering these images takes a lot of time, it’s easier to show my husband than describe it all to him, as that is usually followed by “trust me…” And, it helps us sort through the possibilities!
And, the same is true when working with clients – many times they are willing to pay an extra fee to be able to see how it will look.
Are you good at visualizing a room from a story board or do you need a drawing like this?
So what do you think? On the right track?
