We got a glimpse of Mandy Moore’s latest renovation in her new home this week: Namely, a laundry room that makes an otherwise function-first room look like a zen paradise. Almost all-white with black hardware and wooden shelving, it’s enough to make even my laundry-hating heart skip a beat. (It’s perhaps not so surprising that Moore would want a laundry room this gorgeous: In her Instagram story, she explained that she “legitimately” loves doing laundry.)

The designer for the newly-refreshed laundry room shared all the details on her blog, which including shopping credits for everything, from the dreamy cloud wallpaper to the canisters on the wooden shelf.

The canisters, it turned out, were a surprising find that is actually from the kitchen section of West Elm. A chic and (relatively) affordable storage solution, the textured canisters cost between $24-49. The MM-approved containers match the natural-and-white tones of much of the laundry room, while also providing some pretty but functional storage.

As far as what the canisters hold, I cannot say; the blog post is mum on that topic. But I love the idea of stashing detergent pods or even dryer balls in them. You could even keep delicates bags, baking soda, or even powder detergents and stain removers if you’re dedicated to regularly refilling it.

The canisters could also be placed anywhere you might want pretty storage that keeps essentials from disrupting your minimalist vibe. (Anyone else think these would make incredibly chic tampon holders?) You could even put them on a entryway table for catching change, or anywhere you might want to keep extra phone chargers at hand.
