If you're so done with man caves and playrooms and everything
else that's about giving everyone but moms a space of their own,
this contest is for you. The local design team of Divas N' Design
is planning to give one harried Chicago-area mom a mom cave of her
own-a $20,000 re-do in her home.
"Everything in our home, and I'm a mom too so I know this, is
not our own-the kitchen is not my own space, same goes for the
laundry room, which I'm in quite often," says Karyn Musick,
president of Chicago-based Divas N' Design. "I think it's important
for moms to have their own sanctuary where they go, a retreat for
them to clear their mind."
The mom cave can be anything from a whole room to a corner or
nook mom wants to call her own. The contest winner will meet with
the designers to talk about her likes and dislikes, but they'll
take it from there, surprising her with the final product.
To win, submit stories, photos and videos to mom-cave.com. The
most outrageous stories will be highlighted weekly on Facebook and
the top 10 with the most "likes" will be finalists for the prize,
announced on Mother's Day, May 13.
"We're looking for the best story. We're not going as much by
the pictures of the space they're sending us as much as the story
of why they need it," Musick says. "We're looking for the most
