The Important Design Lesson I Learned from These Laundry Rooms

There's not a lot to the laundry room. A pair of machines. Maybe a countertop. With a sink, if you're lucky. Giving it all a beautiful backdrop with a bold wallpaper is an easy and fool-proof option that just might make it your favorite room in the house. So keep that door open!

Above and at top, designer Sarah Sherman Samuel's recent laundry room renovation and makeover, featuring dramatic floral wallpaper from Ellie Cashman. Check out the progress on her blog.

I love this green chinois wallpaper (Palais Chinois from Osborne & Little) in the former Oslo home of Dagny of Scandinavian Chic.

Wallpaper is especially a great treatment for an open laundry room design, like in this Toronto home from Sealy Designs Inc. (This "wallpaper" look here is actually tile, though!)

No surprise the laundry room in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine's 2014 Serenbe Designer Showhouse, designed by James Wheeler, is dressed to the nines.

The blue trellis wallpaper in this laundry room from Carla Lane Interiors (Anna Spiro Rosey Posey Trellis Wallpaper in Ginger Jar Blue) perfectly coordinates with the cobalt blue laundry machines.
