We're back at our Canyon Ranch Project today and I'm so excited to bring you through some of the "less seen" rooms in the house. Before the holiday break we revealed the Phoenix home's massive kitchen transformation and incredible update to the adjacent living room. Windows were moved, islands were shifted, tile was grouted and it is hands-down your favorite project of ours to date! Now it's the utilitarian spaces' time to shine. We're walking through the laundry room, mudroom and the powder bath that sits just off the kitchen.
To kick things off, this sweet laundry room got quite the overhaul. As you can expect, this room started out dark, drab and outdated with lots of wood tones that just felt heavy. We replaced the cabinetry for a sleek shaker style painted in a rich navy blue and contrasted with polished brass hardware. Penny tile was run from the new quartz counters up to the ceiling for a major backsplash statement that almost acts like a wallpaper. But the biggest change we made was the gorgeous graphic floral tile that ties it all together. We finished this space off with lots of multi-purpose accessories from LW Home like the watering can and pottery.
SHOP THE LAUNDRY ROOM
We created this chic mini-mudroom moment that added ample storage and functionality to a tight space. The custom built-ins in a powdery blue draw inspiration from the kitchen, but stand as a statement all on their own. These clients have older children, with only one still at home in high school. This drop zone works perfect for them now, and will serve as excellent storage into the future as empty nesters. A combination of pull out, open and closed storage paired with handsome hooks means this space is doing double duty - gorgeous to look at and handy around the home.
Directly across the hall from the mudroom is the powder bath. This space is the main bathroom while our clients entertain as it's just off the kitchen and living areas. We wanted something dramatic and unexpected, so I treated this space like a true jewel box. We installed vertical shiplap and painted everything Evening Dove by Benjamin Moore. The handsome vanity has great storage for hand towels and first aid and feels so substantial in the smaller space. To keep things from feeling too traditional, we used the Adelson Wall Sconce from LW Home for a modern touch. They give off the most flattering glow - this bathroom totally feels like a swanky boutique hotel. Not surprisingly, I couldn't resist a statement floor, and this patterned tile is the perfect nod to traditional Spanish tile.
