Fresh Picks :: Laundry Room Supplies

The chic laundry room design by Evars + Anderson earlier this week had me thinking about the unavoidable task of cleaning, folding and ironing the endless laundry that piles up. Okay, I rarely iron, but seem to be washing and folding clothing several times a week.

To brighten up the dreaded task, I’ve rounded up a few fresh, functional and innovative laundry room products to help you get the job done.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Laundry Room

It’s on many of our wish lists; a fabulous laundry room. Perhaps it’s why the Laundry Room in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase has received so much buzz. Inspired by the colorful butterflies in Christian Lacroix’s Butterfly Parade wallpaper, Evars + Anderson Interior Design transformed a small space into a very chic and functional laundry room. The wallpaper (which has a cool 3D effect) covers the walls and ceiling and grabs your attention first. E+A pairs the whimsical pattern with timeless materials such as polish Nero marble for the countertops and black & white penny round tiles for the floor. They also redesigned the upper cabinets using a lattice pattern – for a vintage, yet fresh look.

But, perhaps my favorite detail are the custom drying rack drawers hidden above the washer and dryer. Love this!

happy decorating,

San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 :: Sneak Peek

This year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase is a beautiful Elizabethan-style home designed by iconic architect Julia Morgan (notable works include the legendary Hearst Castle and became the first woman to be awarded the American Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal). The residence located on Jackson street in the prestigious Presidio Heights neighborhood, was completed in 1917 for $20,000 for Abraham Rosenberg, the “Dried Fruit King” and his wife, Alice.

In the last few months, thirty-eight Bay Area interior designers have transformed the six bedroom, eight bath home for the San Francisco University High School’s 38th annual Decorator Showcase. Gorgeous light fixtures, exquisite furnishings and extraordinary wallcoverings had me visiting spaces more than once on my tour. Here’s a sneak peek of the showcase:
