Laundry Room Makeover and #YesItsPineSol

I've always wanted a subway tiled wall all the way to the ceiling, and I found just the perfect room in our house to do so. We have a sunken laundry room/mudroom. The ceiling must be 15 feet high. There is no better way to introduce some drama than to have a full wall of subway tiles with dark grout. This is the first thing I see when I enter the house. We will see a few missing tiles behind the hanging rod in the picture below - I changed my mind mid-project to extend the tiled area to the wall on the right, so I ran out of tiles and had to wait until January when they were back in stock. 

To refresh your memory, this was my laundry pre-makeover. 

The vintage brass hook rack was from the London Portobello antique market. I love love how it looks next to the tiled wall. I am still yet to pick a wall colour. Still debating between dark or white; or maybe white walls with a black door. I chose Mapei unsanded grout in Pewter for contrast with the white subway tiles. 

For the life of me I just couldn't seem to get a decent picture out of my laundry room. There's very little natural light during the winter months. 

Speaking of winter, how did you like the balmy 17 degree Celsius on Thursday? I was out all day and it made me crave for Spring. I was again invited by Pine-Sol to review their new Spring Blossom scent, which is comprised of a delightful combination of Jasmine, Magnolia and Orange Blossom. The Magnolia scent was very present which I love. This comes so timely for the spring cleaning. You can read about my other Pine-Sol review here. It's a great versatile product that makes cleaning chores so much more pleasant.  

I will leave you with this new Roll & Hill Agnes style pendant light recently installed in my kitchen. Since I don't have the time or energy for a kitchen overhaul (and I do need an overhaul because I am changing up everything), I thought I would splurge on an island light like this for now. The pendant light is available through Black Rooster Decor here
