It’s that time again! I’ve been asked to contribute to another fun monthly blog series put together by my friends over at Olioboard. For those that are not familiar, Olioboard is a fun tool for designing and creating spaces virtually on your computer. Interior Designers, decorators and home owners alike can use their mood board building software to look at their decorating ideas on paper before spending a dime…..and the best part is, it’s easy! You can see my Olioboard profile page here to see exactly how I use it for client projects. The last Monday Oliohop that I participated in was on Nursery Design and it too was a lot of fun and very inspiring.
The theme for this month’s #Oliohop (hash tag in case you want to follow along on Twitter) is “Mom Sanctuaries”. We’ve been asked to share our ideas and thoughts on creating spaces just for Moms and I must admit for this Mom there is no other sanctuary or get away better than my own Master Bedroom Retreat.
I am not a scrap booker or gardener and I can’t really sew, so my place to just get away and relax would be my private retreat, my quiet room. I’m sure these other spaces are great for some Moms, but for me, the Mom that loves to read and watch TV (I am a Bravo TV junkie….yep I said it), I’m dreaming of shutting myself in this beautiful, dreamy room below. Ahhhhhhhh. You can see this board in person here if you want to get up close and personal and find out more about the products and furnishings I’ve used.
Here is a list of my SANCTUARY must haves….See if you agree:
TV/ Movies/ DVDs (with remote controls for all)
Cozy Blankets/ Pillows
My Favorite Chair and Ottoman
Coffee or Tea
Slippers/ Cozy Pj’s
Candles/ Lamps Light
(**Bonus: A Lock on Door)
If a Master Bedroom get away is not exactly what you had in mind, be sure to head over to all of the other participants blogs. They will surely have something that is perfect for you and right up your alley. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, head on over to Olioboard, create an account (it’s super easy), and put together an awesome Mom retreat of your very own. If you do, please be sure to share it here….I would love to see all of your rooms!!
