To transform their dingy and outdated laundry room into a bright and modern-day utility space, design blogger Erin Loechner and her husband, Ken, renovated the entire room from top to bottom sans contractor.

Now, the space appears stylish and homespun but 100 percent functional.

Panels from an 18th century French screen hang on the wall as a focal point in this beautiful, neutral traditional dining room.

Styles mix beautifully in this game room featuring a large pool table. A black ceiling complements the white crackled paint finish on the recessed paneling, and a large piece of modern art ties the two together.
