jens pick, laundry





This week I thought it would be nice to step outside of the rooms that get all of the attention, and take a peek inside some laundry spaces that I am loving.
Most of us have our laundry hidden away....I think it is time to give the hard working washer + dryer duo the attention the rest of our homes receive.
I am hard at work coming up with some solutions for our laundry area, which thankfully has great bones....lots of counter space for folding, cabinetry for storage, a double sink and a high ceiling...but it wreaks blah, and screams practical function....I want to pretty it up!

Enjoy these lovely laundry rooms....personally, I could spend all morning in any one of these with a steamy cup of tea and heaps of dirty clothes!

this is exactly what I want!
so far we have the washer and dryer, and the door.
we still need: drywall, blue paint, molding, tile, rug, light, cabinets, ha

The first laundry room would be so nice to have. We have a dim basement.

Great laundry rooms. I wish I had the space to have something as amazing as these. Maybe ill have to reinvent the small space that I have.mmm now you have got me thinking!!?

The first one is beautiful. Mine is terrible but will be one of the last rooms to be attended too. It's tacked on the side of the house and is more like a storage room! Hope you are having a nice weekend!

These rooms would almost make me WANT to do laundry! But not ironing :)

I'm working towards the look of the top pic but have no counter space or drawers - just a washer/dryer sandwiched together. But I love the paint colour and that rug really makes it! : )

I have a sick obsession with pretty laundry spaces.
