There's not a lot to the laundry room. A pair of machines. Maybe a countertop. With a sink, if you're lucky. Giving it all a beautiful backdrop with a bold wallpaper is an easy and fool-proof option that just might make it your favorite room in the house. So keep that door open!
I love this green chinois wallpaper (Palais Chinois from Osborne & Little) in the former Oslo home of Dagny of Scandinavian Chic.
Wallpaper is especially a great treatment for an open laundry room design, like in this Toronto home from Sealy Designs Inc. (This "wallpaper" look here is actually tile, though!)
