I'm the same way. Someday, when I get to pick my own house, a laundry room will be HIGH on my must-have list.
I love that yellow wallpaper and #5 is definitely my fave. :)By the way, I created a doily runner inspired by your post awhile back. I love it and thank you for the idea! You can see it here:http://petiteinsanities.blogspot.com/2011/04/cookies-doilies-puppies.html
Haha I'm quite relieved to see that someone else pines over utility rooms too! I daydream over them in the train every day....imagining having all the laundry in there...there cloth nappies, a old fashioned tin container with 'laundry powder' written on it...*ahem*. anyway, just found your blog and I'm really enjoying reading through all the archives! I'm following now and look forward to your next post!Julie
