ONE ROOM CHALLENGE – GUEST STARS – LAUNDRY AND UTILITY ROOMS

VISIT MY INSTAGRAM FOR THIS WEEKS GIVEAWAY!!!!

There were so many great room transformations in the Spring 2017 ONE ROOM CHALLENGE that I had to break my “Greatest Hits” series into 2 weeks!

Of all the categories _ Children’s rooms, Living rooms, Bedrooms,Bathrooms,  Exterior spaces, Dining rooms, and Entryways – it has been the

LAUNDRY AND UTILITY ROOMS

that have blown me away the most!!!

My eyes have been opened to possibilities I never considered … useful and beautiful ways to maximize space which even in the most luxurious of homes, is small in comparison to its counterparts. Now I am looking at my OWN Laundry room – a room which I do not dislike and which I even kind of LOVE – with new eyes – I see potential I never saw before and I told my husband that I feel a makeover coming – perhaps Fall 2017 One Room Challenge will be in OUR laundry room.

I have made note of some key factors in maximizing Laundry room space

1. Cabinets and improved storage

2. Folding Surface

3. Updated Lighting

4. BONUS – colorful wallpaper, or unique tile

5. Extra sink with cool faucet!

The popular color this year was muted green and floral dominated the wallpaper scene… Both of these elements add an authentic natural layer to an otherwise industrial and cold room. All of a sudden (well after MUCH hard work) the rooms go from feeling kind of like a room you want to get in and get out of fast – to a room where you think “Gee, I wish there was a sofa in here…so I could plop my tired self down and chill!”

There were 254 room transformations in the Spring 2017 ORC and here are some of my favorite Laundry rooms – by no means ALL of the best. ENJOY!!!

AS A BIT OF A BONUS I AM INCLUDING A TRANSFORMATION THAT TRULY TOUCHED MY HEART. During the makeover of her garage studio, Lauren lost her Father. She forged ahead, with his inspiration and finished this space. I know for myself, my work and my painting are the best thing for a broken heart and I hope Lauren finds comfort and solace in her new work space…though …as some have commented…it is almost too pretty – but I say..Get dirty and create!!!!

GARAGE TURNED STUDIO. AT UNDECLARED PANACHE I AM GREEN WITH ENVY FOR THIS WORK SPACE!
