I’m on a roll with home tour posts this week!! ;) I’m excited to take you inside our laundry/craft/workroom. I wanted an inspired space to do laundry and work on art projects with my kids so I added a window on every possible square inch I could. There’s just something about natural light that completely changes my mood. When we were in the drawing phases, Drew and my architect thought I was crazy but they both have apologized and told me I was right about the windows haha. I love that light to pours into this space and we capture as much as our mountain view as possible.
I love the large island, it makes doing laundry more painless and it’s been sooooo great for sorting colors and folding. My designers wanted the island to feel more like a vintage furniture piece rather than a massive built-in, it’s so much lighter in the space since it’s a table rather than a full block of drawers and wood. We went back and forth on whether or not we should double it up but I’m so glad we did because we can get double the amount of laundry done and we don’t need to wait around while a load finishes to start another.
We also did a nod to our blue windows in our last home in this space. It took us three different paint jobs to get it right. It was kind of a nightmare. It went from seafoam green, to purple blue to this icy blue. Luckily we finally got the color right!
