In this airy and multipurpose laundry room, versatility is the name of the game.

Autumn Mohon oversees all operations for Marcus Mohon Interiors. Her husband and business partner, Marcus Mohon, often says Autumn Mohon has a gift for making things happen. Her insight, attention to detail and light touch are invaluable in pulling together all the disparate elements of design projects. It’s a little like trying to win a race while riding 14 different horses. But she’s good at whipping things into shape. After all, she’s also the mother of four children.
Autumn Mohon is originally from a Texas Hill Country German family. She grew up in Fredericksburg, Texas, and has a lifelong love affair with the family ranch in the region. A longtime athlete, she is a former coach and schoolteacher who enjoys triathlons and long-distance races. Her next goal is to join the Seven Continents Club, made up of those who have run a marathon on each of the planet’s continents.
Here, she shares the inspiration behind her design of this sea-blue, Southern-style laundry room.
Get the Look
“To do this, use open shelving with textural vases, jars and bottles.”
Find a saturated color you love.
“Don’t be afraid to be bold. We recently painted a client’s laundry room fuchsia because she loves color, and it looks amazing.”
Never underestimate a built-in bench.
“This seat provides a convenient and attractive place to set groceries, bags or flowers.”
Incorporate Southern style.
“Wood-plank walls and ceilings create a charming effect in this room.”
Think about the sink.
“A deep-basined, apron-front sink is versatile and practical in a laundry room.”
Add a touch of black.
“In a room, a little black color is like the eyeliner, and great light fixtures are like the jewelry.”
