Modern Laundry Room
Laundry rooms can be a great place to let your style shine. Just because it’s an everyday workspace, doesn’t mean it needs to be boring and utilitarian. Normandy Designer Kathryn O’Donovan recently completed a Laundry Room for a client in South Barrington that has style as well as functionality.
This client was looking to create the Laundry Room of their dreams in their very beautiful and unique modern home. The home was originally designed by Peter Roesch, who was a protégé of Mies van der Rohe and has a distinctive modern look. Kathryn’s design goal was to both enhance and soften the home’s modern stylings at the same time.
The room featured a modern cement plaster detail on the walls, which the homeowner wanted to preserve and show off. Open shelving with exposed brackets reinforced the overall industrial look, while the walnut cabinetry and honed limestone countertop introduced warmth to the space.
This happy client has now added more functions to this room than originally thought possible. The space now functions as the gift wrapping center, gardening center, as well as laundry room.
