Enjoy daily chores in a beautiful room. While the space described reads like a decorating disaster, it’s entirely possible to take the exact same space, have two large items housed inside it and make it look deliciously fey and fun, which is indeed what one decorator did. First off, funeral purple was removed in favor of a frothy paper covered with bouquets of flowers. Pastel stripes and lots of fresh white made up the rest of the floors and walls. And although the two large objects in the rejuvenated space were actually a washer and dryer, they were a fresh white and looked rather like giant square mushrooms in a magical forest glen. Gold hardware and throw pillows added more charm to the erstwhile porch turned workroom, in the end proving that even a utilitarian spot can be a delight to the eye.
- Pastel prints and colors for room walls and fixtures can do a lot to lighten up a small, dark and dreary space.
- Floral motifs and color choices like pink and turquoise look very fresh, summery and youthful.
- Using feminine touches, like a pink door, floral bouquets and throw pillows, can make even a utilitarian space pleasant to be in.
“The space is filled with bold touches, like the “showstopper” floral wallpaper and the colorful flooring she painted herself.“
