Posts Tagged ‘Laundry Room’

I adore designing laundry rooms and it doesn’t matter the size. From small to large, it’s my favorite room to design, apart from the kitchen. Below, is my latest laundry room makeover.

For this one it really was paint that changed everything. I painted the walls and cabinets, added a new countertop and redid the flooring. However, even if your budget doesn’t allow you to change flooring or countertops you can buy a couple of gallons of paint for walls and cabinets and literally transform the look of your space.

My inspiration for this room came from the photograph below. Just love the look and feel of this room. The earthy floors, lantern-style light fixtures and cabinet paint color.

I decided to use the same paint color that I used on the kitchen cabinets (Flintstone by Dunn Edwards), as well as the same Quartz countertop in order to tie it in with the rest of the home. I wanted an earthy floor and since I couldn’t use brick for this project I went with this tile instead. I chose light fixtures from The Home Depot and used antique bronze and brass accents.

All in all a fun project to see completed.

Have a wonderful weekend!

My second post for this Austin project is the laundry room/mud room – one of my favorite spaces to do! In the past laundry rooms were seriously neglected, but these days people are paying a lot more attention to them. We gave this one plenty of attention.


The client picked this very fun trellis wallpaper by Schumacher, and we added 2 gorgeous light fixtures from Pottery Barn as well as various built-ins for storage. The contractor custom-made a glass door so the wallpaper and chandelier could be visible from the kitchen and living room, as well as allow more light in.

The only thing we are waiting for here is the cushion for the bench which will be in same fabric as the one for the breakfast nook bench.
