is order and
beauty, richness, quiet
~Charles Baudelaire, L'Invitation au Voyage
What I wish my laundry room to be. The light! The order! The beauty! The fresh cut flowers!
What my laundry room really is:
I know, the sad, plastic drawer thingy really doesn't measure up to that lovely green armoire, does it?
I found those wonderful laundry room photos in a Victoria magazine years ago. I've kept them in a binder, hoping for the day I could create the laundry room of my dreams.
So far, no dreamy laundry room. I will say that my current laundry room is better than any I've had previously. At least there is not a leaky sewage pipe in this one. AND it is right off the kitchen, on the main floor, not in a basement. AND it has a door that opens out to my courtyard where I will soon have a kitchen garden. So, it does have it's merits. What is doesn't have is richness, beauty, order or quiet. Hmmm...maybe someday!
Do you have a gruesome laundry room? Do you dream of a serene and lovely laundry room? Head over to Parisienne Farmgirl for an ugly laundry room contest!
Can I just say "laundry room" one more time. OK. Thanks.
