Doing laundry isn't a particularly exciting task—but that doesn't mean your laundry room can't be an exciting place. In fact, this little room is a great spot for experimenting with bold designs that might not quite fly in other spaces. If you're looking to give your laundry room a little upgrade, these nine boldly patterned rooms will provide you with plenty of inspiration.

If you had told me yesterday that I would write a post featuring not one but two rooms with horse wallpaper, I would not have believed you. And yet, here we are. And isn't it cute? Moral of the story: dramatic wallpapers seem even more dramatic in a small space, and wallpapers that might seem a little too cutesy somewhere else somehow seem just right.
