The Friday Five: Laundry Room Details

I’ve got a bathroom/laundry room renovation on my mind¬†these days. I¬†would really like to start the reno this spring, but¬†I’ve had little time to finalize the design plan. It’s not going to be anything too complicated as it is a small space, but every reno needs thoughtful consideration and planning. Am I right?

I’m looking at the design details of these laundry rooms and they’re making me wish I had a large enough space to incorporate¬†all of them!

Celebration: Thank you Troy!

Well, well, well, Paint it Black week has come to an end. What did you think? Would you like to see more black on the blog or shall we stick to white?

I want to extend a big thank you to Troy from Caviar20 for his fantastic posts. Catch up on any posts you may have missed by clicking on the following links:

Art: Black Works

Would you hang an all black art work in your home (or fantasy museum)? What if we said it was a work by Robert Motherwell, Louise Nevelson, Kara Walker, Richard Serra, or Robert Mapplethorpe?

Reconciliation Elegy, 1978, Robert Motherwell (at the National Gallery, Washington DC)

Sky Cathedral, 1958, Louise Nevelson (at the MoMA)

Kara Walker, 2008 (from an installation at the Whitney)

Art & Design: Ian McChesney

Fiona Chan is Caviar20‘s hard-working, tireless, charming, and clever intern. An interior design student at Ryerson University, Fiona had a lot of great ideas for Caviar20’s “paint it black” week on White Cabana. She alerted us to this sensational sculpture, located in London, by British artist Ian McChesney.

Titled Out of the Strong Came Forth Sweetness, the 72-foot high (!!!) sculpture resembles the upside-down form of tar dripping off of a spoon. Made of carbon fibre by a company that does ship building, the base is actually a leather-covered round seating area. Wild!

Interiors: Bill Indursky's Black Apartment

Bill Indursky is the founder of VandM, an amazing site that is similar to 1stdibs  but with more international dealers and lower priced merchandise. Bill lives with his partner and dog in a 350 square foot (!!!) apartment in Chelsea (New York City).

We did a house tour of Bill’s nearly all-black space forr ApartmentTherapy last year. The responses were very divisive.
