A Home Tour - My Mom Cave or "A Room of One's Own."

Welcome friends to Natasha In Oz. I am so thrilled that you have taken time out of your busy day to spend some time with me in my little corner of the world, Down Under!

Today I am so excited to be taking you on a little Home Tour!

A Home Tour - My Mom Cave or "A Room of One's Own."


My 'Mom Cave' is really our sitting room area. It is a room that is shared by everyone in the family so perhaps it is officially not a room of my own but it is the place where I relax, read, converse, decorate over and over again and just love being in.

Welcome to My Mom Cave!

This is the room that we use for entertaining.....

It is also the room where I sit down at night with my family to chat about our day.....

We watch TV in here at night too.

I don't often get to choose what to watch but this is one of my favourite shows to watch in my Mom Cave!

I often sit here by myself during the day with a cuppa and a magazine.

I am often re-decorating this room. I love creating little tablescapes and vignettes in my Mom Cave.

  43. Lovely photos of such a lovely home! You are right - you don't need a special room to be a mom cave, it can be a common space :) Thank you for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  44. It was so lovely having a look around your gorgeous sitting room. The cushions really make the room and it looks beautiful at Christmas. Speaking of which, I must check out your Christmas blog! And of course you can pass on the PNP, spread the joy! Rachaelxx

  45. Wow-wow!! I LOVE these photos!! How inspring! Mom Cave..it has such a nice 'ring' to it. I have one too..I just call it my 'sewing' room. The only problem with it being officially a 'mom cave' is that it's often filled with large sweaty boys. Ah well...someday! Ha!

    They play group computer games (everyone online and working towards the same goals in the same game) with their Dad. He loves my new sewing/office desk from IKEA so much that I'm getting bumped to the livingroom. Hmm.. seems like I need to establish some territorial rights here. Ha!

    Your decorating is beautiful! I'd love to have tea with you. :o)

  47. Natasha, your Mom Cave looks so inviting. I especially loved it decked out for Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  48. It is wonderful that your "mom cave" is a place that you also welcome your family and friends. That means you are truly decorating and making the space cozy for times other than when you are alone. I really liked seeing how you decorated for Christmas too - so warm and welcoming!

  58. I just trying to leave a comment and it would not go through for some reason. Anyway, hopefully this one will. I love your cave..it's cozy and I love your seasonal displays on the coffee table. Those books on/about England look so interesting too.

    Thanks for sharing this special space with us!

  60. It's so feminine, delicate and beautiful. I loved the love birds. I saw some red ones like that at TJ Max that I didn't buy and now that I have more shelf space in my area... I wish I'd bought the birds.

  61. The Mom Cave - what a great idea!

    I see so many Man Caves in our neighborhood - the decked-out garages (black and white race striped floors, plasma tv for sports, high end tool storage cabinets with worktables and card game tables!) that I'm glad to see we've found a spot for the ladies!

    Will have to join the next one!

    Best Wishes,
    Linda

  62. I am doing a happy dance all because of your curtains I loooove them!!
