I have always wanted a little spot to call my own, a “mom cave” if you will. But with a small house and three young children that need me close by, it’s hard to carve out a space that is all my own. Recently, I asked on our facebook page what you’d have in your mom cave and I loved the ideas! That’s it, I need my own spot.
I find myself migrating between two spots – one where I work, one where I chill – but I need a spot that can combine the two activities. And a spot that is actually, you know, one spot. :)
Instead of a “mom cave” where I’m off in a locked room hiding from everyone, I need a “mom spot” where I can work, relax, play with kids, and get creative. A place that is near the family and I can keep an eye out while working from home, but is my own little haven to get down to business or get away from it all.
I’m thinking that I’ll take this little corner in the family room where the old recliner is, and make it my own. Maybe with a chaise lounge (I’VE ALWAYS WANTED A CHAISE LOUNGE.), colorful throw pillows, homemade artwork, and plenty of kid-proof but pretty storage. My own little “mom corner”, if you will :)
I created a pinterest board with ideas for my mom cave. Colors, furniture, patterns, ideas, and DIY projects:
And I sat down and made a list, cause I mean business. Here are the requirements for my “mom cave”:
- be near the kids and family
- near windows and natural light
- have a comfy spot to sit, work, create, or relax. Or nap.
- have bright colors, bold patterns, and fun artwork
- have kid-proof, but pretty storage for electronics and equipment
- a place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Or a beer.
We headed to La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries to get ideas to spruce up the space with a new sofa, sectional, (maybe a chaise lounge?!), or chair. Here are some of the sofa/sectional options I liked:
some recliner options that don’t look like your typical recliner:
I’m a traditional person, there’s no getting around that. :) While I’d like to be fun and pick a bold print for the sofa or chairs, I just can’t do it! I’m thinking of a medium warm gray for the sofa and chair, I’m stuck between these two:
However, I’d like to add a big punch of color and a bold pattern with one of these pillow options:
La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries had a great selection that was comfortable, stylish, and affordable. They are much more than just recliners! My only problem now is narrowing things down.
