Laundry Room Ideas & Some News

(Unknown photo source)
This is not my laundry room. Not even close. My laundry room couln't even live in the same neighborhood as this laundry room.


Unfortunately, this is my laundry room. When we moved in 15 months ago, it was the last unfinished area, and at the time, the least important.

Laundry Wall Before
No one ever even sees the laundry room. Right? So what if there is a moving blanket on the floor being used as a rug. (I can't believe I am posting these pictures.)

Several weeks ago, I got the green light from Bryan to begin the laundry room renovation. I started gathering inspiration photos, (like this one from the TV show "Sarah's House"). But then we got sidetracked by another project. (See the "news" section at the bottom of this post).

Since I won't be able to start my laundry project for a little while longer, I will just have to keep stockpiling inspiration photos. The HGTV Dream Homes always have great laundry areas.

I love this flirty little sink skirt.

This laundry room was posted on Brooke Gianetti's Velvet & Linen blog back in 2009, but it still takes my breath away.

This beautiful laundry/mud room is from the blogger "A Room for Everyone".



And now for the news! We are under contract to purchase new renovation project for
Yellow Dog Design. The closing date is scheduled for March 15th, so as soon as I can get in there I will take lots and lots of before photos.

Have a great Wednesday, and get lots of laundry done!

San Francisco

(Photo from Marriott website)
So we just returned from the absolute best Valentine's Day I have ever had.

Seriously. Four days in beautiful San Francisco with my hubby (of 15 years this month I might add.)

Let me just say, it is a good thing there are a lot of hills to walk in that city because I ate..... I ATE A LOT. Our hotel was at the very top of the hill in this old photo.

We stayed at the Stanford Court Renaissance Hotel by Marriott.
Our room was small but really comfy and stylish. Also a super location.

And no, I never saw the inside of this room.

I have to say the thing I liked best about San Fran was the architecture.

And if you have ever seen the size of Nordstrom at Union Square, that is saying a lot.

So when I got home on Monday night I did the first thing I always do when I come home from a trip (and no it is not unpacking.......still not done.) No, the first thing I do is look at Real Estate listings. And as I'm sure you can guess, San Francisco has some dandies.

If you have $12 million to spend I have just the place for you.

The house is over 9,000 square feet, and was built in 1904. (Interesting that it survived the big earthquake in 1906).

This house almost makes me want to cry.

No seriously, I have tears.
