week 2 of the one room challenge is underway. i am making some progress on decisions.
now that i have committed to getting this area done in the next few weeks, i have been getting nervous about getting the cabinets made and installed. no kidding---i have emailed my cabinet fabricator 4 times in the last 5 days. i think he gets the hint that i am READY for those drawings.
i still don't have them yet, and i feel like i am sprouting grey hairs waiting around...
here is the design plan for the area:
i love to pull together these plans for clients, and always make one for rooms i am designing in my own home. for me, having a visual guide for a room helps me finalize finishing touches, and motivates me to complete the project!
the mudroom PLAN:
*add a seating/storage built-in (the longer leather pulls will be installed on the lower drawers, and the leather pulls will be on the upper cabinets)
*add planking. i am considering a "random" look to the panels.
*adding grasscloth to the ceiling. i scored some ralph lauren herringbone grasscloth wallpaper about year ago on ebay, and i am hoping i have enough!
* adding some art. still up in the air about size, style, color...
*adding shelling to the closet, along with the bird wallpaper. i have been in love with that wallpaper for a while, and i like the idea of getting a little rush of happiness when i open that cam closet.
laundry room PLAN:
*add cabinets with some great hardware
*add counter. i am hoping to find a rem ant of a black veined marble, but i will settle for some honed absolute black granite.
*install a backsplash. this might be one of the items that doesn't happen happen due to time and money.
*add a roman shade
*install some trim to the ceiling in an "x" detail
*get a new light.
if anyone want my cabinet guys email, so that you TOO can bug him about getting those drawings to me, let me know! he might need a little more email motivation! ha! i'm only kidding. (or AM i?)
