Doing the laundry is one of my least favourite jobs. Sorting through piles of dirty clothes and linens, popping them into the machine and then into the drier or on the line, and then folding and ironing them is about as appealing to me as a visit to the dentist! (I can only imagine how much worse it would have been, and how much longer it would have taken, in the days before all our mod-cons!) However, the laundry chore would be much more enjoyable if I had a gorgeous room in which to work like this one which belongs to my good friend, Chris. Light and fresh, heaps of storage space, smart white shutters, deep butler's sink and beautiful touches all make this a room worth showing off. I love the shelves for display making this more than just a utility room - the metal boxes were picked up on Chris' travels in South Africa, and the oval trivets belonged to her Grandmother in New Caledonia. And wouldn't those colourful bird pegs (bought in Byron Bay, Brisbane and Paris) make you smile as you pegged up your shirts? Chris (and her husband and son) live in a stately Queenslander, built in the late 1800's, which they have been slowly and lovingly renovating. I promise to show you more stunning rooms in another post!
