Hi, everyone! Wow, things have been nuts around here. My brain is overheating. I woke up last night at 4am obsessively processing our laundry room layout…for an hour and a half. I just have this feeling that the layout I’ve planned isn’t the best use of the space, and that bothers me greatly. Spatial Wizard, whatever.
Decisions need to be made pronto so not to delay the project. Pressure. I’m having issue with the laundry room sink. At first I thought it was imperative. Now I’m second guessing its importance. Having one means it will be in the middle of the room in a peninsula with only that doorway width for passage to the garage and the space that will function as the mud room. That seems tight. I could put it along the wall, but that sacrifices my desk/office space/mudroom in that yellow room in the back.
I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on this matter. Sink or not to sink? I told my husband we wouldn’t regret putting one in, but we may regret not having one. Maybe.
Inserted randomly: Problems continue on this here blog in that I can’t upload photos reliably, which makes me not want to blog.
The good news is that I’m closing in on a kitchen design–it changes weekly–that may feature custom hardware made by my brother. Our conversation today about their fabrication included vocabulary out of his mouth like “anodize” and “negative ions.” Okay, your words hurt my head…I don’t need to know the secrets to your metal magic. But I am so excited about this possibility! Remember he made the frames for the lanterns at the loft? Made. The. Space.
And way back 8 years ago, he made the gorgeous stainless steel countertop for our North Carolina kitchen island…shipped all the way from Texas.
Oh, man, I miss looking out that window at the peak of Plott Balsam Mountain.
And way, way back 11 years, he made the stainless steel countertop for the island in our first house. I guess it just isn’t home without my brother’s handiwork.
I loved that Waverly toile valance something fierce.
Okay, everyone, let’s focus! Back to the sink, please let me know what your thoughts are. I will have two sinks in the kitchen next to the laundry room, a tidbit as you consider this pertinent matter. I’m eternally grateful.
Oh, and, I’m so excited to share a nursery design this week that I whipped up for Darlene’s BebeBebeBebe (if I weren’t so lazy, I’d put in accent marks) nursery series. Be sure to check out Fieldstone Hill Design on Thursday for a very TPH baby space. I follow in the footsteps of many talented designers who have participated this summer in the series. The pressure!
The sink! Don’t forget!
