Modern Laundry Room

Normandy Designer Kathryn O'Donovan was able to add more function to this room than originally thought possible. This laundry room now functions as a gift wrapping center and gardening center, with plenty of counter space for laundry and cabinetry for storage.

What is the exact stone used on the counter top? Is it Mauve Napolina?

I just conferred with the designer, Kathryn O'Donovan, and she informed me that the stone color for this countertop was simply Napolina, with a honed finish.

Thanks for your question. These particular brackets can be found through Hafele, this link has this bracket and a few others to consider.
Good luck with your pantry!

Kathryn O'Donovan of Normandy Remodeling
The finish on the walls is a concrete finish applied to the cinder block (in a plaster like fashion) and was original to the home. I am assuming this, but it looks like it was left to cure in it's natural state and was neither stained nor painted.
As an alternative, I would suggest looking into Ralph Lauren Paints with the River Rock finish. It has a similar texture.
Thank you for your question and interest. Kathryn - Normandy Builders.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

It looks like these are used for storing thread (for sewing on a wayward button) and twine (perhaps for tying up those wrapped gifts). Love it!
This is a more contemporary version of the potting shed laundry room.
