Been looking a lot actually.... and it would seem that there are several things I keep returning to....
- Front loading appliances
- White cabinets
- A vintage laundry sign of some variety
- Black & White photos and/or kitchsy laundry-esque art, including a fun clock like #1 above
- A counter (totally on the dream list falling in the category of someday... way down the line! Would be amazing to have a counter like #14.... it's an ironing board counter!!)
But the venetian pattern is perfect for that scale of room. Here's a photo of what the pattern looks like:
Image via here.
It's a 12" x 12" tile, the smaller sizes are the same tile cut in half or quarters. We really liked it in dusk travertine. It was tumbled. And gorgeous. Much like the photo above. And $14-20 a square foot. Now, if we lived in a custom house or in a different area and we were in our forever house? We would totally do that option. But we do not and we do not want to overbuild for our neighborhood or overspend for our unplanned laundry room renovation.
We loved the tumbled, hand polished look, but have decided not to go that route this time.... it makes it more expensive!
So instead we will be getting:
A natural stone...We have settled on a choice... I think. :) I'll be back to share a peek at it soon. (And it doesn't cost $14.95 a square foot either!!)
Darker in color...
With natural veining and/or some interesting details.
