For laundry room...instead of the ugly tide bottle, use a drink dispenser for detergent. Pretty and you can see how low you're getting!! (this is an AWESOME idea for home made laundry soap dispensing too!!)
The gray and pink scale do wonders with this. I love how the bricks are pink, from there you see the pink umbrella hanging downward. You can see the contrast of the pink, being bright, and the gray, staying neutral.
