Usually when I go into a room, I can pretty well get a vision for what I want the space to look like and what decisions would make the room the most practical. In this room, however, I was so frustrated! I have no idea why, but out of all the rooms in our home, this space gave me the most headache. I really wanted to create a beautiful sunroom, full of lush, green plants and lots of natural elements, but since our back door leads into this room, we also needed a designated area for shoes, purses, coats, etc. Then, to throw an ugly wrench in the plans, the washer and dryer had to find a cozy little home in here as well. So basically, I needed to make a laundry room/sunroom/mudroom combination, and make it look somewhat cohesive.
We are literally the worst about capturing before photos, so this is the only one we could muster up. Nonetheless, we were glad to say goodbye to the outdated floors!
This was one of the last areas that we remodeled because I just couldn’t quite get it together, but with some paint, new lighting, and lots of begging Braden to build shelving and other things, we finally got it done! Now that it is finally finished, this nook of our house is one of my favorites. I LOVE all of the natural light that pours in from the windows. I love the elements of old and new. I love the crisp, bright whites mixed with the warm, natural, woods. I love the modern hardware with the antiquated farmhouse galvanized accents. I love it all!
This room has shown me that even the small, seemingly insignificant areas of your home can be pleasant little surprises. And maybe, just maybe, it will make me hate laundry just a little less.
