laundry room

HEL--llooooo laundry room!!! i'm going to eat you up!!! forget the bedroom, i think i will sleep right on that lovely little blue-gray-legged gem in the center, thank you!

cement. as countertop. i keep hearing people say that it's so indestructable, cheap, etc...really? i wonder. it looks cool but i can't imagine it being cheap to have someone custom create a heavy piece of colored concrete for ya.

if i could have a door to the pantry/laundryroom area. or, if you are matt, you just say, "why don't you just keep the laundry room perfectly clean and then we won't need a door?"

i wonder what is kept in those pretty drawers? seem too nice for dirty clothes, right?

i really like this playful mix of tile colors in squares. i think i've posted some other similar pictures.

Thoughts on the Dungeon

This is a beautiful space, isin't it? So many neat things. The lighting, the ceiling...the funny purple stool. I think being a photographer of spaces must be so interesting. Or maybe, being the stylist of the space. I always wonder about the person who turns every item just the right way, arranges the flowers, angles the chairs...I guess they are called "stagers"? Do people get paid for that? fun! but mostly saved this picture for the finish on the cement floor. I love the look of the unfinished ceiling, but our basement ceiling is too ugly to be chic and industrial looking.
Here - saved this for the countertop. Actually the whole console. Would make a great looking countertop/workspace for basement.

Amazing lighting!!! It makes the space, doesn't it?

Just wondering how to lay out doors/windows. Would be nice to add natural light down there for the dragon.

How much would I love to paint the floor white...I wish I knew someone who had a white painted floor so they could give me the scoop on the maintainance. is impossible to keep clean looking? We will paint the cement floor, not going to try to cover with some expensive flooring. Not sure exactly what the options are for cement. Have seen "acid wash" I think, and "staining", and epoxy. Will need to do some cement floor research. Not sounding very exciting.
