And so after a good push over the Christmas break, my darling father finished his part of the laundry room makeover. I am thrilled so far and now just have to set about decorating the room. My original thought was to paint, however the walls need just enough repair that I am thinking wallpaper might be the way to go.
The wallpaper will go in that corner where the samples are right now and be the background to the floor to ceiling adjustable shelving. We want something graphic but not too busy...I love the large scale damask in the store but felt it overpowered here. My husband loved the pseudo chevron but it comes out too dark in the space...it came down to the one noted above and the small scale damask...we agreed on the one noted above, but I am still secretly deciding.
As I mentioned previously I have a gallon of a wonderful teal/turquoise'ish colour that I am thinking of using as an accent, perhaps behind and to the right of the washer and dryer.
There is still lots to do and we still need to figure out what to do with the faux stone panelling on the left there, but we are so much further ahead and I am so thrilled at how much space I have.
So because my husband and I both gravitated to the black and white wallpaper I did some searching for black white and turquoise inspiration...
Have you ever used turquoise? What do you think, is black white a turquoise the way to go...or is it too 2011?
