Modern Laundry Room

Normandy Designer Kathryn O’Donovan recently updated a Laundry Room for a client in South Barrington that added modern style and functionality to the space.

This client was looking to create their dream Laundry Room in their very beautiful and unique modern home. The home was originally designed by Peter Roesch, a protégé of Mies van der Rohe, and has a distinctive modern look. Kathryn’s design goal was to simultaneously enhance and soften the home’s modern stylings.

The room featured a modern cement plaster detail on the walls, which the homeowner wanted to preserve and show off. Open shelving with exposed brackets reinforced the industrial look, and the walnut cabinetry and honed limestone countertop introduced warmth to the space.

The door to this room was existing to the home, so unfortunately I don't have any detials on where you could source something for your project. I'm sorry that I couldn't be of more help.

This wall had a concrete plaster finish that the designer chose to highlight with exposed shelving.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Designer Kathryn Donovan says her client has found the multifunctional room of her dreams in this crafts and laundry room. "This is one of the most hardworking rooms in the house," she says. "It's a gift wrapping center, a garden shed, a laundry room, the place where she bastes the turkey during Thanksgiving and one of her go-to me-time spots in the house."
