pièce de blanchisserie

I'm mildy obsessed with utility rooms or laundry rooms. Although I prefer a laundry room to be completely functional I also admire a certain utilitarian look. No fussy layers, simple clean lines and shelving with pretty but functional laundry aides. Glass jars, aluminum scoops, and vintage soap advertising are some of my favorite things to dress up a lr.
I prefer neutral wall colors but splashes of fresh coloring here and there in accessories. I love the little towel wrack below the sink in this picture. Functional but mignon!
This laundry room caught my oeil with its simple little sink suspended by stone. The wooden counters and the stone seem to compliment one another. The wrack above, délicieux indeed! I would use the wooden wrack to dry herbs.

My laundry room functions as a retail merchandise area. Serving to be both functional and resourceful since I have a shop within my home.

 How many laundry rooms have you seen that have been transformed into a shoppe?
My laundry room houses homemade laundry powders and linen waters, dryer sachets, ironing sprays and sachets filled with lavender.

Ayez un beau jour
