Laundry and glamorous are two words that seem incongruous, at least in my house. But the Laundry Room created by Old Town Crossing for the Hampton Designer Showhouse took care of the "dirty business" with glamour to spare. The room isn't large, but it is well planned with two sets of Electrolux washer and dryers to get things done in a jiffy and an antique wooden shelf for storage. And while you are waiting, there's time to admire the crystal chandelier (why not!) gorgeous Scalamandre wallpaper and lounge in the cosy armchair. It sure beats washing your whites in the basement!
