Well as most people who know me know -
I love my home, I love making my home comfortable, I love decorating my home
and I especially love having things I like to look at out on display....
... even in my loo!
Well it's my loo and laundry combined actually
(I'm pretty grateful for a second water closet in a 50 year old cottage!)
I have a small space directly opposite the toilet that fits the washer
and then I have a lovely handmade wooden bench top
and a small little butler sink.
We were really blessed to have found a home
where all the renovations were
tasteful and discreet whilst still maintaining a bit of character
Whilst most people would think I was bit of a nutter going to any
lengths to make a utility space look pretty;
I actually think it's paramount that I
love what I see when I'm tending to everyday cleaning and washing...
As you can see I have a thing for Blue... in all it's shades....
I've hung some of my tea towel bunting
along the door that leads out to the patio and across the wall toward the
vintage mirror I picked up for $10 at a Salvos!
This art work was made by Young Prince (when he was 5)
and it's travelled all about our homes over the years...
It's hanging directly above the washing machine in a small
corner as you step into the room.
I might add that although there seems to be a lot in this space it really
is quite tiny. (Maybe 3 metres squared?)
Still it does the job...
Instead of some hideous fly mesh/security door
I chose to hang lace curtain material (off cuts from a bargain bin at Spotlight)
across all the doorways that lead outside.
I love it when the breeze billows the curtains and you can hear all the birds outside...
So there you have it.
A little nook of my home for you to see.
What about you? Do you have a snazzy laundry space?
When I consider the fact that there are still ladies (maybe men too?)
I love this space EVEN more.
Whilst I have no doubt that a community singing and chanting whilst beating
their undergarments on a rock CAN provide for a harmonious and pleasant
experience - I think the privilege of one touch technology in a room lit with
string lights is ... well ... more my style :-)
Have a good one peoples!
