We have a dirty little secret: our clean laundry usually does not make it back to our closets. It sits in about 7 hampers scattered through out the laundry room and our upstairs hallway until we are desperately searching for one particular piece or another and then it ends up on the floor. There is no excuse, and I have no explaination for why we dread putting away laundry so much but I could only imagine that perhaps we will clean out act up once we have a laundry room that is semi-functional. The size of the room is not the problem, in fact we are lucky to have a fairly good sized room on our main floor complete with large window and lovely new front loading washer and dryer. I think our problem has to do with the distance between the washer and dryer (um hello, aren't they supposed to be next to each other???) and the cluttered cabinetry.

Unfortunately it will probably be one of the last rooms on our to-do list to be checked off, but in the mean time here are just a few of the rooms we will be using as inspiration, the first picture in particular:
