Ideas for our Uninspired Laundry Room
We're in a self-imposed no-project zone right now, as our house is totally livable and my student loans are oppressively earning interest. (I'm about 50% through paying off my highest interest loan, if you're curious.)
When I went to orientation my first week of Physical Therapy school, I vividly remember someone from financial aid getting up to say that nobody ever complains about their student loans once they graduate and start working. I now understand that this is the case because said graduates are busy working a second job, doing paperwork to qualify for government assistance repayment programs, and heartily recommending to hapless underclassmen that they consider public universities. Much too busy to call financial aid and mention their distaste for the excessive cost of education. OR the fact that after earning a doctorate degree, if they want to pay off loans on a 10 year standard repayment plan, after monthly student loan payments they'll make approximately the same amount as the tech who helps them lift patients and went to 4 years of high school.
Okay, rant over.
Anyway. My laundry room looks like this:
Or from closer up, like this:
And I need something to think about while I drive from my first job to my second job as I try to avoid thinking about milkshakes. Something that is not the actual mound of laundry waiting for me at home ... the one that I can't remember whether it is clean or dirty but took my scrub pants from this morning because the seemed clean, and they are for sure not the ones I wore on Tuesday when I stepped in a lake of urine. Again: I am underpaid.
Here's a color scheme I am drawn to. If you're ever looking for color inspiration, check out Design Seeds (link below) for some quick ideas! I could imagine either color 2 of 3 as a cabinet color. Maybe 2, with 1 on the walls and 5 or a lighter 3 on the ceiling?

Love the vintage style of the sink and faucet in this room. And hello, are you carrara marble??
