The 29-year-old singer - who has sons Sean Preston, six, and Jayden James, five, with ex-husband Kevin Federline - has a "very traditional" home and says she spends most times in the room where meals are prepared.
She said: "My house is very traditional. And I love `shabby chic`. It`s a very homey-cosy vibe.
"We spend a lot of time in the kitchen actually, maybe my kids will be doing their homework or that kind of thing when they get home from school. I love my kitchen."
When she isn`t working, Britney - who is dating her former agent Jason Trawick - enjoys relaxing by watching movies with her sons, even if they don`t always understand what they are seeing isn`t real.
She told Stylist magazine: "The last film I saw was `The Never Ending Story` with my children. They liked it but they were scared in places. They were like, `This is scary, we don`t want to watch this. And I was like, `It`s not scary, it`s fake, it`s a movie.`
"They haven`t really grasped the concept that movies are fake - they always say, `Is this real?` and I`m like, `No baby - it`s just a movie.` But they liked it."
