Home & Garden Colorado: Color Up – Laundry Room Project Feature

This laundry and mud room provides a transition from the garage into the living area and serves as an introduction to the color palette in the home. A busy, active family uses this space, meaning that it had to work hard, with a sturdy floor, cabinets, and more. The materials in the room deliver functionality, along with a sense of fun, color, and high style.

“Laundry rooms are kind of a buffer from the outside to the inside, and so the surfaces really need to be hardworking surfaces,” says Victoria Maxwell, senior vice president of showroom and client services at Boulder’s Design Studio Interior Solutions. “They need to be easy to clean, with things that can really function in our sometimes-harsh climate.” Candace Donnell, senior vice president of design, worked with the homeowner to develop the room’s character.
