I added a little color to the room. Pink! I think it works for me. The little vintage wall pockets hold my embroidery thread and I added pink and red plaid fabric behind the cabinet glass window. AND because my laundry room is right off the front door entrance, a little Scentsy plug-in helps disguise any unusual smells coming from that room:) I'm still working on the other side of the room. It has a nice floor to ceiling row of shelving and a small, bare wall begging for some attention. As a side note, I fell in love with this tiny room (it totally sealed the deal when we purchased this home).
