The "It" Room: Momcave

Word on the street is, Mancave: Out, Momcave: In.
As I see it, a Momcave is a space devoted to the imagination, relaxation, and fancies of the woman of the house. That woman need not literally be a parent, as almost all women are mothers to someone or something - even if it's a houseplant!

In my mind's eye, my Momcave would be part sitting/reading area, creative workspace, with a little corner exercise studio - a place where I could capture the fertile ideas that always come up during the monotony of the treadmill, and bring them to fruition - a living mood board, if you will.

It would be inspired...

I've got mine - our living room. It's perfectly decorated and no one is allowed in but me and the cat. Its sole purpose is the enjoyment of design magazines and books:

A cozy little nook with a comfy chair and ottoman, a great lamp, and a cashmere throw blanket. One or two handsome men to bring me cheese and crackers and an endless supply of vanilla lattes.

I definitely want one! Love the idea!! Mine would be a cozy spot to read with a nice little desk to scrap and a nice closet to organize all those scrapbooking materials!

I think you´ve captured the momcave perfectly :)

my mom cave would have a big table, a comfy loveseat, a big window... I would have an unlimited supply of fabrics and a teacher I could call on to help me use them.

i just want my bedroom to be my mom cave.
and it is not the way i want it to be yet.
but simple and clean and pretty and quiet are the only prerequisites.

I'm working on my mom cave right now... my home office!
It includes a bed/sofa with lots of bohemian type pillows, black walls, a big inspiration board and a pink desk.
Oh I forgot... a bed for my baby (pug)
