My House: Laundry, More Progress

We are nearing completion on our laundry / mud room so I thought I'd pop in with a little update. I guess you could say we are easily distracted by something shiny (the sun in this case) - summer came and our priorities shifted to getting the yard done so we could enjoy it this summer. The reality is we are always slowly plugging away at stuff and trying to live life while we do it, so speedy projects just don't really happen. That's life, huh?

Here's a little peek of where the room is at...

This photo really cracks me up. I think it's quite obvious it was neatly styled to include only a few select (and almost hilariously colour matched) pieces. This little nook is usually bursting with jackets, bags and shoes. If we're being really honest, mostly my jackets, bags, shoes.

It's really a dark corner of the house with little natural light, I love how the light paint colour (cil's snowfield) really helps brighten up the space.

We still need to rig something up with the counter top. It's currently a standard depth so a few inches short in the back. The nice thing is that it's in a closet so you actually don't really notice it. The husband is thinking some sorta removable shelf thing to fill the gap and keep access to the valves and such. Stay tuned.

Here's a look at what's left on the list:

  1. Hi Christine,
    It looks great! Can I ask where you got the striped rug in front of the laundry machines?
    Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Amy. We've had the red washer and dryer for years, but I love how the red really pops now.

  3. I couldn't love it more. Before I read your 'styling' sentence I said {in my head}, "look at that Christine, throwing in a red coat for colour cohesiveness". Atta girl.
    We just designed the floor plan for our laundry room / combined work space and although it probably won't be complete for another 365 days these photos of yours are making me EXCITED to get my design hat on.

  6. I aspire to be the type of person who puts all their detergent and cleansers and whatnot into decorative containers. Nicely done.
