When Annie, Cindy and I discussed laundry rooms as a Project Design topic, I instantly thought of my friend, Debbie’s beautiful classic laundry room. We also have Carla Aston Designed, Kelly from My Soulful Home, Melaine from My Sweet Savannah and Rachel from Hygge Home participating this time! You will find lots of inspiration with their links at the end of the post.
Debbie and I had fun creating bouquets in her laundry/flower arranging room. She collects fine French pottery by Astier de Villatte.
1. Flooring and Backsplash
The cement tiles are from a local store, Venetian Tile, and Stone. With a fun patterned floor, the backsplash is kept subtle and classic. Debbie also got the marble countertops and sink from Venetian.
2. Counter for Folding and a Bar for Hanging Clothes
I love that she has all this clear space for folding clothes.
3. Attractive Baskets
The walls are painted Benjamin Moore White Dove and the woodwork is Benjamin Moore Super White.
4. Meaningful Art
Art from her travels (like the vintage poster and handpainted ceramic, both from Italy) provide an escape from chores and personalize the space.
It’s nice that she has natural lighting from the window above the sink.
5. Classic Lighting
Debbie chose light fixtures with a timeless schoolhouse appeal from Restoration Hardware.
Can you see the built-in ironing board on the left in the photo below? Another great idea…hidden behind the door.
And those are ways to create a beautiful classic laundry room! Wouldn’t be so bad doing laundry in here, right? And an even better room to arrange flowers (more appealing to me :).
Let’s check out what these ladies have in store with their laundry rooms…
