THE BOUDOIR

A woman’s private sitting room, dressing room, or bedroom.   [French, from Old French bouder, to sulk or pout]  The boudoir was used a elegantly furnished private drawing room, and was used for other activities, such as embroidery or entertaining intimate acquaintances (or sometimes gentlemen) or a place where a lady may retire to simply be alone.

In later periods, the boudoir was used as an elegantly furnished private drawing room, and was used for other activities, such as embroidery, intimate acquaintances (or sometimes gentlemen) or a place where a lady may retire to simply be alone.

A boudoir – shouldn’t every woman (or man) have one of their own? A lovely place to which to retreat … to relax, to play, even to work or simply to be alone …What a wonderful luxury!
