If you asked me my favorite chore, it would be laundry. I’m not sure why, but I don’t mind it at all, and folding and ironing are some of the only times I let myself watch TV or movies – so I find it super relaxing. And getting the laundry room finished early in the renovation project was SUCH a nice thing, and it remains one of my favorite spaces in the house.
Week Six : Utilitarian Spaces!
Show us your Laundry Rooms, Mudrooms, Basements, Work Spaces, Craft Rooms, Potting Sheds, Workshops – any place where life is cleaned, created, or worked in!
I know I’ve posted on the laundry room, so this isn’t really new information, but it’s definitely my favorite utilitarian space in the house. And, it has so many facets that I was able to play with some light and shading and color and angle things with my camera. We’re getting ready to start organizing the basement into a workshop, and hopefully that will be a new favorite too (but probably with less Monkeys on the wall – and the room will be lesser for it).
The built in dog crate was one of the BEST thing. And it’s one of Marina’s favorite places to camp out.
I will never regret the ceiling color, or putting a chandelier in a work space. It delights me!
Old sewing machines are so freaking pretty. And I love having one in the space. They’re really cheap (when they don’t work) and function as art. I love the graphics and lettering.
