Loving Laundry

Ok, so I don't know anyone that REALLY loves to do laundry, however, having a functional, even beautiful space can make even the most menial tasks enjoyable. Recently, a client approached me to make over her laundry room. She wanted a space for everything -- storage galore! She also wanted to create a mud room out of a dark dingy catch-all of a space. So that's just what I did....
 We ditched the old tile for a "hardwood" look -- we kept it tile so that kids coming in from the backyard pool would have place to drop wet bathing suits. 
 Brandon Parrow created these amazing custom cabinets equipped with hidden broom and vacuum storage as well as a dog food (see kick plate) drawer. 
 The carrera marble top adds an old-fashioned touch and created a folding surface. 
 Vintage looking glass knobs finish off the cabinets and the fun wallpaper by Amy Butler (via Graham and Brown) adds a whimsical pop of color throughout the space. 
And now for more function... two kids, two drawers for storage and tons of hooks for bags, totes and pool towels. Oh, how I love a good laundry room. I may have even done a little laundry for the client while I was prepping for photos. Yes, it was THAT inspiring... 
bye bye birdie...

I would love to know where the open top bins on the folding area above the washer/dryer came from? We're doing some work in our laundry room and those would be perfect! :)

Attractive laundry room! I never imagine to create such beautiful space, and I even ignore it for its just a laundry room where everyone never notices. I think I have to start remodeling my laundry room; I love wallpaper and the lamp fixture!
