The Blue and White Chinoiserie Laundry Room

Kevin Walsh
 Since I turned my laundry room into a blue and white Chinoiserie retreat for the One Room Challenge a year and a half ago, I have enjoyed discovering more great laundry rooms that have been elevated from utilitarian to extraordinary.  In addition to doing laundry, a beautifully done laundry room can be the perfect space for a home office, wrapping gifts, crafts, flower arranging, homework, the possibilities are limitless. Recently I toyed with the idea of adding an antique Chinoiserie daybed I saw at auction, but decided that might be too weird.

Here is a fantastic laundry room that includes many of the same features I used in my own laundry room.

*A dramatic wallpaper in blue and white, here the iconic Clarence House The Vase. Since a laundry room is probably not a room wants to use artwork on the walls, a great wallpaper is the perfect solution. I personally think that no color scheme is as fresh and clean and crisp looking as blue and white in a laundry room.

*White cabinetry and white washer and dryer - again, I think white is such a clean look and I am not personally a big fan of washers and dryers in colors.

*A classic black and white tile floor.

*Upscale lighting and accessories.

*Seating.

*A Steele commercial laundry hamper.
