his laundry/mud room gets an updated look with colorful cabinetry! The brilliant teal color blanketing the cabinets, a custom mix by the cabinet maker, was actually the initial inspiration for this newly built Modern Farmhouse in Ann Arbor, MI. Although a mud room is typically a space somewhat out of the regular line of sight, it plays a vital role in the overall flow of a household. Here, laundry is done, jackets and boots are kept, and important materials for a busy work or school day are stored. This is the last stop on our way out the door in the morning and our first breath of home after a long day. The client was seeking a fun and unexpected hue to energize these in-between moments and liven up her daily household tasks (especially on those gray Midwest Winter days!) and Laura Zender Design delivered, proving that a little TLC goes a long way!

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL
fabulously bold bedroom uses a colorful bed frame to pack its punch. The subtler tones of the teal color are replicated in softer textures, like the rug centering the room, or the artwork lining the interior wall, creating a cohesive feel without an element of obvious compulsion. Its effortless aesthetic renders the space feeling authentic, inviting, and mature. Whimsical prints, like the giraffe hung where a headboard might usually be found, add a hint of youthful energy, softening the structured sensibility of the bed frame.
