Chic Chateau Showhouse – Kitchens, Laundry Rooms and Mudrooms
Find a great new trend-inspired fabric(s) and reupholster that boring chair pad.
- Use a color that is inviting, like the soft copper that pops the white cabinets off the wall.
Add small, earthy touches to white cabinets with artsy knobs.
Add an amazing chandelier to draw the eye up in the laundry room!
Display your treasures creatively – like photos clipped to repainted shutters.
Display your treasures in an artful way.
Vintage is the rage, so head to antique stores, consignment shops, yard sales and estate sales to find extremely well-made American products.
Trust your initial thoughts about interesting pieces – if you love it, you will use it.
Collections work well and are reasonably priced when creating interesting wall art – think sheet music, album covers and antique prints.
Create interest through layering like we did with the table, which is painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
An industrial tone helps make the laundry room functional and bright.
Function is the first consideration in the mudroom, which serves as a catch-all space for the family coming and going. From wet boots to overstuffed bookbags, design must address storage, convenience and safety.
These are great tour photos, Suzy! So much inspiration! I’m taking notes on those mudrooms!
Thanks for the tour Suzy!
I am disappointed that I missed the tours!!….the rooms are so beautiful….I love the breakfast area bench!!
I adored this tour and all the gorgeous images!! Every room is beautiful and the kitchens and laundry room are awesome! Thanks for dropping by and leaving me such a sweet comment. Hugs,
Don’t you just love peeking into other homes and seeing all the fabulous eye candy!
I love that yellow window seat in the first house!
Woah this blog is excellent i really like reading your articles. Stay up the great paintings! You recognize, a lot of persons are searching around for this information, you can help them greatly.
Very beautiful homes.
Those are some gorgeous gorgeous homes. The first one with that bright kitchen and the pretty yellow kitchen set had me in awwwww.
LOVE that first kitchen. All the ideas are cute, but the yellow is my favorite…
Thanks for sharing this inspiration….
Love the tours. One thing i thought about 2nd home. Did not like the drapes or rug in kitchen. Too much. Not that i dislike the drapes , maybe somewhere else. Just seemed over powering in that room.
Love those yellow chairs in the kitchen. The first house seems to consistently speak to me more than the second. It’s just a matter of personal taste but I would feel more at home there I think. Love this series. Thanks for sharing on BeColorful.
Loved the tours, they’re all great! I enjoy looking at these, like opening magazines of interior design! Big hugs,
So glad you are sharing this tour. Love what you have shown so far and wan’t wait to see more.
Oh! I love both… but the second one is down right dreamy!
Have a great week!
Great tours. I love the window seats. Reminds me of my Great Aunt’s house. Thank you for sharing. Visiting from DIY by Design.
