Hello there! I hope you all have been doing well since last we met. Today I want to share with you my interpretation of what my "Ultimate Woman Cave" would look like. The lovely people over at Chairish asked me to participate in another challenge where select interior design bloggers were asked to design their ultimate woman cave using vintage barstools that are featured on their site. I chose a pretty silver bamboo inspired pair to create a room around. I love mixing metals and finishes in a space while striking just the right balance between them. I hope you enjoy the design as much as I did creating it.
I had my inspiration for my ultimate woman cave; the barstools. So, all I needed to do now was pull together a color palette that I would love to use to complement them. For me, that was easy...gray, blue, and white with gold accents sprinkled throughout. I knew I wanted beautiful lighting fixtures and a striking wallpaper to add the right amount of femininity. Thinking of textures to use, I decided on a soft velvet sofa, silk draperies, and a shaggy plush rug underfoot. From that point on it was just a matter of selecting all of the other elements that would support the design and complete the room.
I decided to use the barstools off to the side; still very much a part of the room, but allowing for a more separate moment if desired. I did struggle with including a bar of some sort or pedestal table. I don't think I would want a bar in my woman cave, so I resigned myself to create a timber pedestal that would be large enough to hold a tray containing drinking glasses and appetizer plates. I like the idea of using a solid wood pedestal as opposed to glass, acrylic, or the like, because I felt that with the existing elements of the area there needed to be something with more substance to ground it and give it some visual weight.
I really love how I incorporated the barstools into my woman cave design and although I adore the entire room; I would have to say, the area with the barstools are my favorite. It brings in a feature that you know you will find in a man cave and a family game room, but with the feminine sophistication of a woman. I would love to hear your thoughts, comments, and suggestions on what your ultimate woman cave would feature and possibly what I should include in mine.
Make it AMAZING!
