And without further ado...


I truly cannot stop staring at the navy!!!  Plus, I love the wood folding counter against the navy blue.

Remember where we started:

Laundry/Mudroom Before Collage

The room is so small it was REALLY hard to photograph. So basically I have to show you guys one wall at a time.  

I wrote last week about how much I have fallen in love with the navy cabinets and now you can see why.  What an impact it made in the space.  I mean SERIOUSLY! Look at that luscious NAVY! 

The wood counter looks great but also gives me space to fold clothes and prevents things from falling in between and behind the washer and dryer.

My favorite part of the space is the accent wall we made from rope.  It gives the tiny space a much warmer feel and I adore the texture.  As a bonus it added a touch of nautical feel to the Lake House.  The Rope wall truly KICKED our butt, it's 13 ft high and was a beast to assemble but sooo worth it.

The Laundry/Mudroom space is a pass through.  Here is the view walking in from the garage.

As always it's all about the this case it's a reclaimed shelf with leather straps.

I have sooo enjoyed participating in the ORC.  Lots of laughs, a few tears and time spent working side by side with my darling husband.  What more could a woman ask for!?!  I also want to take a moment to thank Linda @callingithome as I have had such an amazing experience getting to know my fellow participants and this design community at large. I will be back next spring! Don't forget to stop and see the Featured Designers here and My fellow Guest Bloggers here.  I have been so inspired by all the beautiful spaces they have done and I am sure you will be too.
