“Your laundry room doesn’t have to be boring. Even a small, awkwardly shaped space can become a fun and functional room.”
~ Kristen Sheikh, ASID, IIDA
Homeowner Whitney Blessing wanted a room for doing laundry, crafting, sewing, and managing the myriad tasks required to run the family’s B&B. Interior designer Kristen Sheikh envisioned a fresh, youthful space with a little bit of quirkiness to help inspire creativity.
Challenged by the small room with three angled walls, Sheikh embraced the uniqueness of the space and its fantastic window feature. She designed a laundry zone, a craft/sewing zone, and a zone with access to the roof, and selected durable, long-lasting finishes that perform well in wet environments.
She painted the cabinets white, the walls in a luminous gray, and accented the pipes in black, and commissioned decorative painter Crista Maree to create a one-of-a-kind hand-painted floor.
What We Love
The hand-painted floor. It packs a quirky visual punch, yet it’s durable enough for the hardworking environment.
