Kate over at Centsational Girl and Susan at Between Naps on the Porch are having a “Mom Cave” link up. A $250.00 shopping spree to HomeGoods goes to the winner. How wonderful would that be to win and then spend?
This room has been made over since I posted this. Links to how my craft room look now are at the end of this post.
I know most of you have seen my craft room a.k.a… my studioffice, but I recently found some Before pictures so you can see how it transformed.
I know it’s hip to call a space of ones own a “Mom Cave” but I am claustrophobic and could not even imagine calling my space a cave. I need lots of natural light. I call my “Mom” space – my studioffice– a place where I blog, sew, putter, read, experiment, wrap gifts, and most of all CREATE. Having this space makes me happy and when Mom is happy, everybody is happy. If I had to give the space a catchy name I would call it my Atelier. Sounds elegantly French doesn’t it?
I was lucky that I was able to take over the formal living room to call my own from the day we moved into our house. Initially I used a lot of mismatched furnishings – this was the beginning.
The room evolved one step at a time.
When designing all the elements in the room I thought purpose first, then pretty. One step at a time my space transformed into a mom cave, atelier, studioffice – a space I could call my own! It is my F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E room in the house.
If you would like more details on how I transformed the room you can find it on this post.
Since posting this, I have updated a few things in this room. You can read all about it here:
