I LOVE that word! Mom Cave.  I first heard it from a HomeGoods commercial.  And thought to myself-hmmm thats what I need.  Our guest bedroom was quite the eyesore.  Yes it had a bed for guest and yes the walls were at least painted but thats where it stopped.  It mostly had become my dumping ground to hide my excessive garge-sale-going-excursions. (to which I have slowed down quite a bit).

I am a new convert of gray!  I love gray/grey (however you like to spell it).  Its such an amazing color- it can be warm, cool, neutral, masculine, feminine…its quite a versatile color.  So 1st up gray walls! accented with white & a punch of yellow.

    I love the idea of a “mom cave” and you’ve interpreted it perfectly. What a fun spot to create and craft! This is the first time I’ve visited your blog, but I am going to be coming back :). Thanks for posting this. I’m visiting from Serenity Now.

  10. I’m in the process of creating my “mom cave”, too … my husband has a “man cave” out in our barn loft, so I figure I deserve a “mom cave”, too! :-)
    I LOVE your space – it looks awesome! The yellow curtains are my favorite. :-)

  11. Love it! There are so many things I love in your mom cave!
    The ruffle pillow, glass nobs on the desk, white frame, etc.
