Mom deserves a little downtime. Set a space aside at home to create a space for her to do so, like a mom cave, she shed, or a lovely nook.
Here are seven getaways with colors and designs that will inspire you to carve out a space for Mom (and maybe even one of your own).
How about this artist’s sanctuary, which includes a craft space, a computer desk, and a reading lounge? The designer transformed an old, unused walk-in closet into this magical space. The white painted cupboards and paneling, paired with the teal accent walls, make this room inviting and calming. Do you have an unused room you could claim, too? Use a color like Blue Calypso for a teal accent wall.
If you don’t have an extra room just lying around, don’t fret. You don’t need a lot of space for your getaway. Just claim a reading corner! Classic white bookshelves, artfully decorated, make a beautiful backdrop for a bold rug and an ultra-feminine chair. Add an anglepoise lamp and a glass of wine, and you won’t have to move until you turn that final page. (But who says you can’t choose another book?) PPG’s Delicate White paint is the perfect backdrop for fun accents.
Cocktail Lover’s Corner
If your dream is to craft artisanal cocktails with a twist, immerse yourself in this fairytale bar scene with cream and rose walls and soaring windows. There’s even a charming pink bear to act as your official cocktail taster. Bonus: You never have to Uber home! Little Lamb is an attractive light color that can help you get this look.
Style Maven’s Lounge
For the style maven in your life, create a lounge space that harkens back to the days of speakeasies. This Art Deco bar, with striking metallic gold walls and graphic gray wallpaper, captures all the romance and color of the era. With the right wallpaper and furniture, you can get this look in your home easily.
This Aspen, Colorado home was built to capture the stunning views. Walls and windows disappear into the background, putting the mountains on display. Create a retreat for your own spa lover with a freestanding soaking tub and a glass-walled shower. Or if a bathroom remodel isn’t in the budget, bring in luxurious white towels and a comfortable, beautiful bench.
For anyone who loves soaking up ocean vibes, this one is for you. Perched on a hill above the San Francisco Bay, this secluded porch gazes down at Angel Island State Park. The colors of the stone floors, columns and walls reflect so beautifully the Northern California landscape beyond. Can’t travel to the Bay Area this year? Buy a bottle of Napa Valley Chardonnay, set the table with some sunny flowers and enjoy brunch with your girlfriends.
Flower Lover’s Dream
Flower lover Anne Wells has a heavenly shed in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, where she creates memorable wedding floral designs. What makes this so charming? White painted wood floors, a tent-like draped ceiling, and a cozy rug to make the outdoor space feel homey. A paint color like Silver Feather can serve as a backdrop for creativity.
