the laundry room: phase 1

the laundry room in our new home is windowless, so we knew that we wanted something a little brighter than what was already there. & also something a little more soothing. you know, a color that makes you happy being in there. well, as happy as one can be doing laundry, that is.

we started with a color that has some yellow undertones. not loving the way that makes this room feel. so...


i've been in love with restoration hardware's 'silver sage' for, um, ever. but i get a great discount at sherwin williams. after a little investigating, we found the equivalent at sherwin williams. it's called 'comfort gray' and it's gorgeous. it's this warm silvery, green {duh. silver. sage.}. it looks a little bluer in the photo than it is in real life, but isn't it still pretty? it looks great on the walls, and i definitely think it brightens up the room, makes the trim pop {and we've got a white washer/dryer on the way}. it just feels fresh. and it'll be the kick-off color for the rest of the house {staying with nice, warm, but brighter tones}. i think i might even use it for the bonus room.

{side by side for easier comparison: before on left, after on right}

stay tuned for the rest of the laundry room updates. the washer/dryer are being delivered this morning. and we have plans for storage on the shelves and for storage in other unique spots.

very nice.... so what happened to your other set (washer/dryer)? Weren't they relatively new? just curious. Can't wait to see the rest of the house!

they stayed at the old place; part of the deal... but that's ok. we're excited to go with white this time rather than black :)

Love the new color! It definitely brightens up that area. The washer/dryer will look great...well probably DO look great since they are there now. Love you!

Silver sage (or it's equivalent) is a great choice. As a matter of fact, we were thinking about painting our bedroom that color (I know Mabry just painted it blue last spring, but we are not pleased with it). Silver sage looks fresh!
