We’re remodeling a beautiful home that needed a little updating. When our client first came to us, they told us they wanted a closet with a laundry room in it. That sounded absolutely dreamy to us! We don’t get to do a space like this very often, so it was fun to create one for our client.
Originally this space had a standard walk-in closet, but we took down two walls to create a large and spacious room. Our client has a modern style, but the home and neighborhood are quite traditional. The goal was to blend the styles together. Our client's must-haves were a washer and dryer, a vanity in the closet, and an island to fold clothes and display jewelry and accessories when getting ready.
We topped the island with a thick marble lookalike and decided to do a shaker detail that surrounds each drawer. This creates clean modern lines that don't take away from its classic look. We painted the vanity in Dark Pewter by Benjamin Moore, a color described as a staple for modern and traditional spaces.
Small spaces are the perfect place to make a statement. You’ll never be taken back buy how grand it is, so we like do things that will stand out. This can be bold paint colors, wallpapers, or carpet. In this case, we did this with the green island and the plaid carpet. When doing wall to wall carpet we usually choose something low-pile, and neutral so it’s not overwhelming. But a contained area allows you to go bigger!
We love products by The Laundress because they work and smell beautiful, while also having pretty packaging you'll actually want to display. Here we used the Stain Solution, Fabric Fresh, and Signature Detergent. We used the Elderflower Diffuser Kit because the scent is a refreshing mix of masculine and feminine, perfect for a neutral space like this.
