If you peruse my blog – you’ll notice I apparently have an affinity for touches of blue tempered with brown…..I don’t know anyone that doesn’t love at least hints of robin egg blue – do you?
Which brings me to our LAUNDRY ROOM
Our laundry room is - let’s say - in transition
It is also confused
Our laundry room is a
- laundry room
- spare bathroom
- utility room
- storage room
All wrapped up in a tiny space
We aren’t quite ready to give it a real overhaul so I’m trying to be inventive and make due with what we’ve got
There are some redeeming qualities of the space
Like - It is painted a nice comforting warm blue
Here’s the layout -
along one wall with have the throne, the laundry sink
and we’ve installed some cabinets for storage (extra soap, paper towels, etc etc.)
along the opposite wall we have the entry door into the room and then next to the door we have just enough room for the washer and dryer
On top of the dryer – I’ve place a BLUE metal tray to contain all the laundry supplies
** The dryer venting runs all the way up the back of the dryer to ceiling (you know those big metal tubes – not pretty!)
so I covered it up by placing a bookshelf on top of the dryer to cover the tube and provide extra storage. Then I covered the front of the bookshelf with a burlap bag for a curtain on a suspension rod
My fave part of the whole room is the large glass canister with laundry soap
with a metal scoop
Need to have a lamp in this little dark corner of my world
and a little metal garbage can for lint etc on top of the washer in a tray so it doesn’t tumble during the spin cycle.
And then we have this….
are you ready for some ugly?
I’ve brought in a screen that I’ve covered in linen
Which covers the guts of the room:
Hello – that is so so not pretty!
But the screen helps don’t you think?
I don’t think this color scheme would fit for my entire house but touches - oh yes!
Alongside my beloved coke crates for the purely lovely red/blue/brown combo – just hanging out on the front porch
I love how this color combo plays into autumn & the crispness of winter, as well.
I’m actually dreaming about this color with white snow background….ugh sort of….but for now enjoying the end of summer, the beginning of fall.
Winter shall be upon us soon enough.
