Laundry rooms can be a great place to let your style shine. Just because it’s an everyday workspace, doesn’t mean it needs to be boring and utilitarian. Normandy Designer Kathryn O’Donovan recently completed a Laundry Room for a client in South Barrington that has style as well as functionality. This client was looking to create the Laundry Room of their dreams in their very beautiful and unique modern home.
The home was originally designed by Peter Roesch, who was a protégé of Mies van der Rohe, and has a distinctive modern look. Kathryn’s design goal was to both enhance and soften the home’s modern stylings at the same time.
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 overall industrial look, while the walnut cabinetry and honed limestone countertop introduced warmth to the space.
This happy client has now added more functions to this room than originally thought possible. The space now functions as the gift wrapping center, gardening center, as well as laundry room.
like that decor on shelve need huge laundry room with apron sink under window. big folding table, mud room bench, wrapping paper storage on wall,dog shower, ironing board, think about the stuff in the garage for decor and to make into other things.
Adores this combination of kitchen and laundry room! Sooo cool! Allows the resident to be able to see everything. Would be able to put in herb garden in shelf above washing machine/corner.. See how it goes.
