Color Story- Laundry Room

April 15th, 2015 | Home Decor, Review

This past week I’ve been a busy beaver working on the new laundry room design. I’m very happy to report it is all finished and ready to take on a heavy load! I’m so excited to share it with you, but first I wanted to talk about the colors I used in this new space.

As I shared in my Laundry Room mood board  I was going to be using the Voice of Color 2105 Color of the Year- Blue Paisley. This bold blue is everywhere right now, I knew I just had to incorporate this punch of color into the scheme.

This blue really set the stage for the laundry room. I had seen so many pairings of Blue Paisley in bohemian color schemes I wanted to add in other bright accents to compliment it.

Laundry Room Color inspiration

I first came across this little rug at the Home Depot . It had all the colors I imagined using to accent the wall color I chose. The little pot of faux ranunculus were the perfect pop of color, and no water necessary, my kind of plant!

I searched high and low for a piece of art work to incorporate and tie everything together, but after a long search with no luck, I created this watercolour artwork. I added in hints of blue paisley, and a bright Va Va Voom yellow frame.

I loved the burst of coral orange in the flowers so much I painted my sock crate a stunning shade. (If you follow along on social media, this crate was responsible for my thumb incident last week, yeowza!). 

Laundry room sneak peek

The cupboards are a bit more on a serious note in a stunning deep grey. I was able to take one of the pre-finished cabinet doors into the Voice of Color Kiosk and have them color match so I could finish the trim work to flow seamlessly.

I was worried about having an accurate sheen to match the doors, but my paint guy suggested using a Matte paint. I was shocked, because I thought flat paints were only for ceilings and wouldn’t stand up to any wear and tear. However, Pittsburg Paints Matte Ceramic WallHide  provides a low-sheen finish with great stain release and washability. I love how it looks next to the cabinets, it really made in-stock cabinets look like custom.  The walls were painted with Manor Hall Interior Eggshell. 

Bohemian inspired color scheme

Blue Paisley PPG252-6, Beachcomber 353-1, Va Va Voom PPG1238-6, Coral Silk PPG1210-6, Kenny’s Kiss PPG 135-6  

I love the bold colors in this color scheme.

What do you think, do you use vibrant colors in your spaces?

Be sure to visit tomorrow for the big reveal, I can’t wait!!
