Heya! Today I’m excited to share a look at our laundry room makeover! It’s a colorful one, as it’s inspired by the colorful doors of Palm Springs. Here’s the scoop!

I tried to find before pictures, but haven’t been able to track them down. Suffice it to say, this was a regular old laundry room before.
A roomier one than we’ve ever had before, but dull nonetheless. Why are laundry rooms always such afterthoughts? Maybe because they’re utilitarian?
Anyway, that wasn’t going to fly for the Showhouse.
When we bought the house, the laundry room had a basic storage cabinet with three doors (the kind you’d find in a garage).
Designing a room is such a process and you never know when inspiration will strike. When we were giving Able and Baker a tour of the house before the renovation, to see what we could dream up together, I had a lightbulb moment…
What if instead of those three blah doors we turned them into three colorful doors like the ones gracing the homes of some of our favorite houses in Palm Springs, like #thatpinkdoor?
When interior designer Rachel Cannon came aboard to transform this room, she was all for it.
And she knocked it out of the park bringing the vision to life, and then some.
I love the wallpaper she chose to complement the design.
Instead of feeling like a utilitarian space, it feels like a room I want to hang out in…perhaps with a martini while I fold some laundry.
Anyone want to join me?
Thank you Rachel for actually making laundry fun! And to Able and Baker for killing it on the doors!
