Ashley Macuga of Collected Interiors in San Carlos, California, drew upon her New Orleans heritage when selecting Rebecca Atwood’s Marbled Ferns wallpaper for this laundry room. “It was the first selection we made of the laundry room, and was the inspiration for all that followed,” she says. She then selected a Visual Comfort pendant light to add depth and warmth, and explains that the custom flooring from Los Angeles–based Arto Brick was “deeply functional, as there are a lot of dirty cleats that are washed in the farmhouse sink.”
Where should a washer and dryer be placed in a small house?
If your home is lacking in square footage, you may wish to set up a laundry area nearby the bedrooms, Hanley notes, adding, “If you don’t have an actual room that would allow for this, is there a closet in the hallway that could convert to a washer/dryer closet?”
Opting for a stacked washer and dryer is the best bet for those living in a small space. “There are great European stackable units on the market that are smaller in scale, and fit well in compact spaces, allowing you to incorporate your laundry into the main area of your home,” Renee comments.
Jennifer Barron of Jennifer Barron Interiors made a bold statement in this laundry room using Pierre Frey’s Arty wallpaper alongside Farrow & Ball Studio Green. “I loved that it looked black, but if you really look closely, it is dark green, just like the dark green in the wallpaper,” the Houston-based Barron shares. She selected a simple mosaic floor tile so as not to detract from the busy patterns present and tucked away cleaning supplies in a basket from Pottery Barn.
