The Laundry Room of Our Dreams

Why shouldn’t you love your laundry room?

We'll be the first to admit that laundry isn't our favorite activity, but it's an unavoidable part of life, and most of us spend hours a week washing, drying, and folding.

Lately, our team has been thinking about how our mission to "Make Life Beautiful," translates into more than just pretty vignettes, but also the most mundane, everyday moments.

Our most recent design project is an expression of that idea, and we never knew we could love a laundry room as much as we love this one.

We're taking some major inspiration from this swoon-worthy space. Scroll through the photo tour below to see for yourself, and gather ideas about how to implement a few of these elements into your own home.

How cool are these canvas laundry bins? Inspired by 1920's steel canvas baskets used to move coal and textiles, these bins are not only beautiful but extremely functional. It's amazing how sometimes getting back to the basics can refresh a space instantly.

“I hate laundry, but when I added a few things I loved into my routine, I noticed it changed the way I thought about it." - Jen Paul, SM stylist.

Even if you don't have a designated under-the-counter space for something like this, you could still style one or two in any laundry room big or small for an update. Plus, who doesn't love the idea of being able to wheel your clean laundry to your closet? Sign us up!

How to make a laundry room fresher 101: Add greenery!

We are officially convinced that every laundry room needs some fresh or faux stems. Bonus points if you style them in an ultra-cool vase like this one.

We can't say this enough; everyone needs baskets in their laundry room.

Not only do they bring texture and character into any space, but they will also quickly reduce clutter by becoming home to stray socks, random pocket finds, and if you don't have cabinets in your laundry room - space for detergent and dryer sheets!

Is there a correlation between vintage art in the laundry room and being more willing to fold clothes? We think so.
