OlioHop: Mom Spot! Link up with us!

I love my kids through and through. My kids are vivacious, funny, full of energy and talkative....VERY TALKATIVE. I can't say I am surprised...I can be quite chatty as can my husband so get the idea. Anyway, while I love to hang on their every word and philosophy about swimming, SpongeBob and Super Mario, at the end of a busy week...sometimes I revel in the delight of sneaking off to my very own nook once the kiddies have been put to bed. Right now my very personal nook is sitting propped up in my bed with the fan on and the door closed...but if I had the chance to create my very own Mom-spot, here is what it would look like:

To view the board closer or to source items from the board, visit me at Olioboard!

What is most important to me in my nook is:
  • a quiet and comfortable place to read iPad, the obnoxious pile of magazines I have and of course, books!
  • a nice clean surface to work on the laptop or sort through fabric and rug samples
  • plenty of closed storage in the dressers
  • some inspirational artwork- (I have a bit of an obsession with chairs....hence my logo)
  • some natural light and some necessary mood lighting with several lamps
  • some pretty orchids...just because!
Hop on over to Olioboard to create your very own Mom-Spot and come back and share the link. I'd love to see what each of you interpret as a place of your own. If you are looking for some inspiration, check out the Mom-spots created by these lovely and talented bloggers.
