This laundry space from Thistlewood Farms proves that laundry rooms don't have to be cold and unwelcoming. Capitalizing on the fact that the space is shared with a bathroom, the owner used traditional furniture elements to create a classic space that is still functional for laundry.

The shelves provide the functionality of storage but also provide an opportunity to add some pretty accessories.
