It’s no secret that Sarah Bartholomew is one my favorite ladies in design. I admire her style and her Nashville home in particular, which is superb. I’m sure many of you are familiar with her work so for today’s post I thought it would be fun to dissect the details of her…laundry room! It’s one of the many great rooms in her home and the most stylish laundry space I’ve ever seen published.
So, let’s get started. Where does all this charm and beauty come from? Well, it comes from the color scheme and the careful layering of beautiful things. Blue-and-white is timeless and Bartholomew chose to cover the walls in a dramatic Quadrille wallpaper called Climbing Hydrangea in French Blue and Almost White. She also kept the rest of the design classic and simple. The white cabinets balance out all the pattern while the marble countertops add a note of old world elegance. Relaxed roman shades with a contrasting blue banding make the room feel like a hang-out space. We don’t see the opposite wall but I do hope Sarah placed a wingback in there for naps. I would never want to leave!
Even the little things are well thought out. For example, the polished nickel hardware ties in beautifully with the appliances. An assortment of baskets keeps clutter out of sight plus adds texture and warmth. Those chic glass containers are a great way to neatly store and display detergents. And since every room needs something green, ferns and topiaries in pretty terra-cotta pots are the final detail that makes it all sing.
Have a relaxing weekend!
