Laundry Luxe A place to conquer and linger

A Place for everything, and then some

The laundry room feels like the headquarters of January, when we want everything to be fresh, clean and new. This laundry room is pristine and crisp enough to inspire deep organizational envy.  This room is also known as the “dirty kitchen,” where craft projects can be spread out and organization takes shape.

The lady of this house collects apothecary jars and uses twine on a daily basis, so she filled her jar collection with natural ties of every sort. She shared her secrets to making organizing look good:

1. Wicker baskets hide the things you don’t want to look at every day.

2. Try a tray next to the sink to corral soap, lotion, and paper towels. The tray will help the assemblage look neat.

3. Necessities and useful things can be used for decorating, too. Buy pretty towels and soaps, and keep them out on the counter. Fill a glass jar with clothespins.  Surrounding yourself with these little luxuries makes even the most mundane jobs more enjoyable.

4. Bring in something green to liven up the space. A plant kept next to the sink is fresh and easy to remember to water.

5. Scour your local hardware and craft stores for twine and string in shades of white, cream, and khaki, and buy it in bulk. It’s always useful to have on hand, and makes a statement when massed together in glass jars.

6. White cabinets always make a workspace feel light and airy, and they don’t show as many fingerprints as you might think. Painting the cabinets is a good January task.

7. Keep your laundry powder in an attractive yet useful container. An enamel tin is great for powder, and glass jars work, too. For liquids, pick up a decorative glass dispenser and add a spout.

Design Tip: Fillers

Create these mini spools of twine yourself. Just pick up inexpensive wooden spools at your local craft store and wind the twine around them. Hardware shops are also a great source for finding utility twine and string at a great price. We mixed decorative twine in with more utilitarian string for a great look. Check with your local fabric shop for wooden buttons and canvas binding.
