    Oh, fer real! Total porn. Makes me think there’s some really bad dialogue going on in that laundry room.

    Hmmm – it would have to be a red room to be porn. That room is like freakin’ heaven!

    Mine would look like that for about 10 minutes, then resort to normal

    Oh. maw. gawd. I thought it was impossible to make me WANT to do laundry, but this picture has achieved just that.

    So, what’s in that washer? Darks? Whites? I am so turned on right now.

    I bet the laundry room didn’t look that good when it woke up the morning of the photo shoot.
    I know airbrushing, when I see it.

    Oh, baby. It’s like a mountain-fresh fetish.
    (PS: I do read these, but I guess I need to comment.)

    It’s practically X-rated porn for those of us who live in Canada and don’t have access to a Container Store. I would move to the States just for that reason alone!

    If’n I HAD a laundry room, it would be all purty-like, and I’d paint it that fabulous color, too.

    Anything designed to make us spend MORE time doing laundry has got to be from Hell. RUN, BOSSY, RUN! DON’T LOOK BACK OR YOU’LL TURN INTO A PILLAR OF TIDE!

    That’s not porn- that’s Catholic. Cause it made me feel guilty as hell. Now to repent, I have to kick my kid out of her room so I have a room big enough to hold this perfect beautiful glorious organization.
    What would Tide do?

    You mean I could make my basement laundry room look like that? Sign. Me. UP!

    Just the idea of not having to drive somewhere to clean my clothes makes me feel tingly in my lady parts. That? That made me have to leave the room.

    Porn? Seeing as there are no children living there, porn works!

    I love the laundry room, but I would never want to use it – I would have bleach marks everywhere in a week!
    The Flintstones’ coffetable is a dead-on description – its completely ghastly AND horrifically over-priced, for such hideousness. The perfect accessory for those who have more money than brains/taste.

    Bom chicka wah wah…
    It just needs a hot, scantily dressed man ironing and it’s totally my fantasy.
    Well, except those white canvas boxes on the top shelf. I can’t reach them and they’d get dusty and gross in my basement.

    I give in. What’s “laundry”?
    When I told Mrs Farty I liked black underwear, she stopped washing mine.
    B’dum tsh!

    I think I just had a tiny orgasm.

    Mmmm…you’re making me all hot and bothered….

    I think that top row of boxes is filled with the one sock that is left after the other one runs off to Mexico.

    When we bought our house, I insisted on gettting those front-loader W/D.
    I WANT THAT ROOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ahhh… you’re wrong — look at the drying rack — they have a tiny, color coordinated baby… 😉

    I think this is pretty nice! 😀

    Damn, that’s one super sorted laundry room. It’s also about the size of my apartment. LOL!
