Talking Interiors: The Woman Cave
Monday, 24th July, 2017
Everyone has heard of a ‘man cave’ (n) a room or other area in a home that is primarily a male sanctuary, designed and furnished to accommodate the man’s recreational activities, hobbies, etc but what about a ‘woman cave’?
It’s not a term that crops up very often but imagine having your own personal hide out. A place you can go to get away from everything, enjoy your own company and just relax without any interruptions. Or if you prefer it could be somewhere to bring the girls, have a fun evening catching up and getting pampered over a couple bottles of prosecco.
Personally I’d love it and if I had an extra room in my house to fill I’d totally do it. I mean with the ideas I have it would have to be a large room but then again who says it has to be a room? It could be a ‘woman shed’ at the end of the garden.
If money was no option and there was no limit on space I’d have a large white painted room with black wooden (heated) floors, floor to ceiling windows and one large bi folding door to open up the space.
In one corner I’d have my own gin cocktail making bar with a high table, stools and a huge collection of gin, freshly grown garnishes and mixers.
In another I’d have a large indoor swinging chair, loaded with fluffy cushions and surrounded by dozens and dozens of plants to create a indoor/outdoor feel. A sort of mini corner green house that you’d relax in, read a book or simply meditate. Propped against the wall would sit a floor standing mirror made of reclaimed wood and draped with fairy lights.
In the centre of the room would lay a huge grey thick faux fur or shagpile rug and on top of that would be a large stand alone black jacuzzi bath that would look onto a projector screen so you can watch movies in the tub! Of course if you’re watching movies you’d need a small fridge to contain goodies and keep your gin or prosecco cold!
The whole space would be filled with mood lighting, fairy lights and candles because… hygge.
I’ve actually created a ‘woman cave ideas’ mood board so if you’re interested in creating your own head on over for some ideas.
