Huis Vrouw

I’ve been thinking for a while about painting the laundry room and the stairwell leading up to the top floor. It’s all a light yellow right now, and while I like the color, it could use with a fresh coat of paint. Today I started painting. For now, I’m doing a simple white base coat, but I would like to do some fun color(s) in there, as well. I’d also like to get the room organized as well as possible to make up for the limited space and angled walls.

I saw a nice room in one of the design magazines here, but have to figure out how to work some of the color combinations in without making the small room seem more oppressive. I might also just have some fun and paint some designs directly onto some of the walls, along the lines of what I did in our bedroom with the bird on a branch.

For now, though, I’ll settle for a nice, even coat of white. Next up, a trip to Gamma or Hema to pick up some more white paint and a retractable-arm paint roller to reach those hard to reach spots in the stairwell.

    • Thanks! Fortunately, my boyfriend and I share a love of orange and design styles in general. 😉

      The wall decals are a good idea. There were some bird ones I saw years ago that I’ve been wanting to do somewhere. I meant to do them in our last house, but never quite committed to it. I probably won’t use the decals themselves, but I might get some inspiration for what to do. I’m all about DIY and have a long history of drawing/painting on walls. Legally, of course. 😉
