Family room "Mom Cave"

Today I'm linking up with Between Naps on the Porch  for Homegoods "Mom Cave" link party.

My Mom Cave happens to be my family room, yes I do allow other family members to "visit" but this is where I spend most of my time. My husband and kids prefer the basement.
This is where the magic happens so to speak.
This is where my laptop lives, where I do my blogging.

This is where I entertain my friends.

There is nothing like curling up with a good magazine and a hot cup of tea.

Chocolate cake, tea and good company...


I love this room because of the cozy fireplace and Yes! I do have my TV in my "cave" Where else would I be able to watch my Jane Austen movies and HGTV?

My little fur babies are welcome anytime. This is Butters trying to figure out what I'm doing.
He is usually curled up here with me.

I hope you have enjoyed my Mom cave as much as I do!
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!


  1. Beautiful room, Kim. I think Butters makes it even better, lol!


  2. Sue,
    Thanks so much for much needed advice. I think Butters makes it better too!

  3. what a pretty fresh space, and choc. cake?! What else does a mom cave need! Lezlee

  4. I love your wall color and your toile pillow. Did you make your pillow and if so do you know what fabric it is? I am obsessing over aqua toile lately. What paint did you use? Just beautiful!

  5. Very bright and calm... serene. love the color combo.


  6. You space is dreamy and Butlers is adorable! My dog "the Co-editor" is always trying to get in the picture. It's like they know. Love the blue hydrangeas, by the way.


  7. Thanks for the comments ladies!
    Amy, The paint colour is smokey green by benjamin moore (It is a blue/grey/green). The toile pillow case is a euro sham from pottery barn. It was in the clearance bin and was the only one left otherwise I would have bought more!
    Thanks for your interest

  8. Beautiful spot to relax and dream. So bright and relaxing.
