close the laundry door and tiptoe across the floor

Oh, Pinterest, you slay me. You are the cause of my late nights, and the inspiration behind my latest endeavours. I turn to you for warmth and comfort, and you never cease to lift me up when I am down. I hope that our relationship will continue to grow, our bond deepen, and that you will never leave me. I think that I love you. Does anyone else feel this way?

I never gave much thought a Laundry Room before planning The Little Barn. In fact, our last one consisted of an old washing machine in the middle of our bathroom, sans a dryer. However, our new Laundry Room is quickly become the most diverse and important space of our new home. Isn’t that funny? This room has to function as a Mud Room, Office, Closet, Dog Room, Greenhouse, and Laundry Room, in addition to having access to the crawlspace beneath our home. Tall order. The size? 11′ x 9’10”. Can we do it? Yes we can!

Here are my reigning finds on Pinterest that are making me excited to create (rather than cower away from) this multi-functional space. I call the style primitive-meets-farmhouse-modern.

Emory

let’s cuddle in the spare bedroom and discuss decor

screen-shot-2014-05-13-at-9-03-44-amscreen-shot-2014-05-13-at-9-06-02-amOur two spare bedrooms in Little Green were a mix between country and rustic. When I had initially decorated them, I was going for more of a country/modern look, but over the next two years I had changed the layouts and content of the two rooms so much that they no longer had a defined style. They were stuck between a randomized bohemian look, sort of like a clown from a travelling circus was told to decorate each room and he did so, while on drugs. They were a mess.

I’ve been gathering ideas for spare bedrooms from all over the internet. This time, I would like a defined style, and to know exactly what furniture is going into the room as well as the layout before we move in. That way, my psychotic clown alter ego will be at bay and my usual anal retentive, organized self will be able to take over.

These are my four most inspiring photos thus far:
