[…] and top-to-bottom organized (you saw their dining nook here, their jaw-dropping laundry room here and their music room here) she has been working hard to inject a little more personality and color […]
I am so sorry to hear about the situation with your house(s)!!! I sure hope that everything goes through, be it at the very last minute! And your stuff is in the new house!!! I’m hoping that they don’t have another buyer and that you don’t have to try and re-sell your old home! Fingers crossed and prayers asked for you!
As for the laundry room~ who WOULDN’T want such a nice, functional space?
Hot dang! 6 kids? Well, that woman deserves a laundry room on the same floor as the bedrooms. That’s always been my dream, a second floor laundry room. For some reason, they’re so rare, but they make so much sense. We’ve got a basement set up now, but my husband does the laundry so I probably shouldn’t complain. And our apartment basement had fleas so I really, really can’t complain since we have a lovely, clean house basement now.
Sorry to read about your hassles and I hope they get resolved for the best, whatever that may be.
As for the laundry room, great space and well planned. I imagine the kids get their clothes laid out the night before or it must be mayhem in there in the morning!
My laundry room is much smaller but well planned and on the same level as the master (and one up for the other 2 bedrooms & bath). So, so, soooooooo convenient, I’ll never go back to a ground floor or *shudders* basement laundry room again!. I do a quick tour on my way up to bed every night, dump everything in the baskets in the laundry room and hop in bed. Wash days I start a load on my way down for coffee and go on from there. Wash, dry, and iron in that room, load per load, thenh distribute to the appropriate rooms next time I go downstairs. No more piles of clean clothes wrinkling on the couch ’cause “I’ll fold while watching tv”… That never happened. What *did* happen though was the cats would snuggle in and the dogs would steal clean laundry and take it outside… Yeah, not clean for long!
Wishing for the best for your family.
Love the idea of a joint closet. We once rented a house where we had wall to wall built in cupboards in the master bedroom and one chest of drawers that housed everyone’s clothing and it was a no brainer to put away laundry and to see who was messing up their cupboard space. Will definitely want to do something similar when we own our own house. So much easier.
I said a little prayer for you guys this morning. I hope everything works itself out today.
Sorry you are going through this hassle, but don’t you think you should retract your statements that you don’t need an attorney to close on a house?? It was ill advice from the beginning.
We already updated that post.
Also, it wasn’t “advice.” We didn’t tell anyone not to get an attorney. We simply shared how we did it which, as Jules pointed out, we already updated – https://www.chrislovesjulia.com/2013/08/selling-home-without-agent-or-attorney.html
If it wasn’t advice then why did you create this picture http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-DucNdd5w5CI/UgJUfRF2gXI/AAAAAAAALF8/R3fWM8iNTyc/s640/8e105e52f86a11e295c822000ae80c95_7.jpg ?
You knew people would take it as advice. I’m sure you don’t care about losing a follower, but I’ve lost a lot of respect for you guys. Keep shilling on YHL comments, I’m sure you will find the naive commenters you are looking for.
Wow, Amy! How rude and insensitive can one be? Most people that reads blogs knows that these are just regular people like you and me that are doing the best they can and sharing how they do it. And I’m sure they won’t care that they are losing you as a follower. Who wants that kind of negativity around. Good riddance!
Good luck with your closing, hope it all works out. Fingers crossed!
Crossing fingers for you. What you are going through really stinks!!
I’m so sorry this is happening to you. I’m praying for good news today. I know when I’m going through something awful my dog always makes me feel a little better. Is Charly around?
I’m crossing my fingers for you guys. Home buying is always so emotional. I’m sending some peace your way : ]
Uuuhg… your situation sounds so stressful! Hopefully, it all goes through and works itself out today!
That closet/laundry space is just… wow. I have no words! It’s amazing!
My fingers and toes are crossed for you! I love this space. Right now I don’t have a laundry room, so that’s on my wish list!
Oh my goodness! I feel so bad for you guys. Soon it will all be a memory.
First, I am so sorry about the house situation. I would be livid- regardless of whose ‘fault’ it is. Especially having to move out of state. Its just awful.
I love this laundry & closet!! I have 4 boys, the two oldest wear the same size & share a room & closet & the little boys each have their own for now. I love this idea. I’ve been in love with the shared closet since seeing the Duggars’ on TV. I was hoping the whole time I was reading this that she had a blog. I love organized big families:)
What an interesting idea with the joint closet. I definitely love that laundry room though! Amazeballs!
praying for your family today that the money comes through…
Speechless. HOLY COW! What a room!!!!! I have both girls clothes in the same room and it is super handy. What a brilliant idea. Ok, let me pin away now :-)
Wow. Awesome space. We’ve been toying with the idea of moving our washer and dryer upstairs. Love the beaded cabinets. Nice.
Oh. Emm. Gee.
If I could build my dream home, I would include a room just like this one! It is perfection!!! Sue
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
