The new "it" room

Over the years specific rooms in houses are pushed by the media as the new 'it' room to focus remodeling and redecorating efforts on. In the past the master bedroom was in all the magazines and TV shows before that it was the dining room. There is a new 'it' room on the horizon.

Did you guess?

It is ...The laundry room.

Recently I bid on several spaces in a competitive and prestigious Decorator's Show house.

(If you have never been to a Decorator's Show house. It is usually a major fund raiser that gets a donated mansion. Each room is awarded to a decorator to design. The public then purchases tickets for a tour. If you have never been to one, I highly recommend searching for one in your area because you will get lots of fabulous ideas to use in your own home and help a charity at the same time).

For an upcoming Decorator's Show House, I was given the Laundry room to make over. I can't wait. Not only is the laundry room the new "it" room but this Show House's laundry room is in terrible shape so the before and after photos will be dramatic.

I have never been this excited about laundry before!

Here is a little peak at the before photo.

Stay tune for the occasional update on the progress of this room.
