Star of This Is Us Mandy Moore’s mid-century modern renovation has been a breathtakingly beautiful journey for all involved – and we’re not just talking about ourselves! She’s shared beautiful pictures the process on Instagram, as have her team of designers and architects, who have done the same.
They’ve all got good reason to be proud of what they’ve achieved. It’s really a fabulous example of what a team of like-minded creatives can achieve together when they’re all on the same style page.
According to designer Sarah Sherman Samuel, Mandy actually enjoys doing the washing, so it was important to make the laundry a beautiful place to be in.
We think they’ve nailed it!
What we love about Mandy’s laundry:
1. The attention to detail
Simple black knobs, custom-made benchtops, built-in cabinetry and high end finishes all the way.
2. Form follows function
Aside from its dashing good looks, the design includes plenty of storage, plenty of bench space and the handy addition of double-hung rails for hanging clothes to dry - all combining to make this an incredibly functional laundry.
3. Timeless style
Whilst the look of Mandy’s home is on trend for right now, it’s also a collection of classic finishes coming together to last the test of time visually. Simple lines in the crisp white cabinetry and black tapware are all quality and long lasting – whilst we think it will endure, even the wallpaper can be replaced and/or updated down the track or even (shockingly!) swapped out for a fresh coat of paint.
4. Wallpaper is king
As Mandy’s home comes closer to completion we can see the addition of decorating details such as the wallpaper used in the laundry really stamp her style on the place. The Fornasetti ‘Nuvolette’ wallpaper is a winner.
5. Modern monochrome
You’d be forgiven for not realising Mandy’s laundry is actually black and white – such is the clever design with plenty of texture, punctuated by black features of knobs and tapware, and the subtle inclusion of natural timber in the shelves and styling.
