I know it has been forever since I provided a laundry room update.  Whenever you do a project mostly on your own, it goes at a snails pace.  After my husband brilliantly executed the demo, plumbing, electrical, drywall, etc....he tackled the penny round tiles and lets just say, he is less than pleased with the outcome.  Who knew penny round tile was sooooo hard to lay?  Well we didn't.  It is so easy to get off by just a fraction which throws the entire pattern off but you really don't see it until you grout which by then is too late.  He actually wanted to rip it all out and do it again but I convinced him otherwise.  We are just pushing on.  Our cabinets were also installed this week.  They were custom built b/c of the challenging dimensions of our room.  A high gloss latex type finish was applied to the cabinets so they are beautiful. 

The Carrara Marble has been ordered for the sink cabinet with waterfall edge (notice unfinished side) and top of bench.  We also have our sink and faucet ready to install once counter tops are in. Now I have to finalize wallpaper choices. I'm torn between vibrant Schumacher Chiang Mai Dragon and peaceful Cole and Son Woods. I also have to find the perfect light to hang in front of the window.  One thought is a George Nelson bubble light but I'm not sure.  A sputnik look would also be cool.  Either way, I'm going to do a Dorothy Draper inspired finish to the door.  I'm going to add the regency style trim work that is on every door throughout our house and paint it in black and white.



  1. Cabinets look fantastic...tough decision on the wallpaper because either one would look great. It just comes down to whether you want color or not. I'm leaning toward the dragon.

  2. Tough decision! You can't go wrong with either one.

  3. I think the laundry room is a great place to take chances and go bold. So, of course, I vote for the Dragon. It is one my all-time favorites.

    P.S. - I think the penny rounds look great. I can't tell anything is awry.
