For better or worse this laundry room and mudroom redo has taken a little longer then desired. Life happened, vacations happened, a new puppy, kids, you know “life”. However, this space is done and just in time. We are on a two week countdown until school starts in our home. Let me tell you, after the day I have had with my three littles. School is a welcome idea. I love them, adore them, but am so sick of cleaning up after them and breaking up fights. Yes, school brings up a whole new set of tasks and problems. But, starting something new, changing things up always makes things fresh again. I will be praising the lazy days of summer and 24/7 with my kids come spring. Mark my words.
This is such a bright and cheery space. I am so happy it feels that way because there is zero windows, which means no natural light. It can feel very cave-like. I really pushed the white and turquoise touches in here to brighten it up. I am bringing in elements of a dark walnut to ground all of this white. It is always about balance, and without the natural dark wood you might need sunglasses to protect your eyes from the glare of all of the white happening in here. I felt for the sake of the look of the room as well as preventing me from wearing sunglasses in the laundry room that it needed to be done. I am not the kind of person that wears sunglasses on inside, no one should be.
|Me and my feet. I am hiding out and setting on the built in bench. Mom time!|
