Boudoir…what’s the real meaning?
August 28th, 2012
Ever wonder how the word boudoir came into being?
Boudoir- bū‘dwär‘, -dwôr‘
“A woman’s private sitting room, dressing room, or bedroom.“
This word comes from the old french word “bouder” which means, to sulk.
Boudoir is a French word whose original meaning was “pouting room.” In earlier times, if a young lady was sulky, she was sent to her boudoir where she could pout in private.
Be sure to make your “boudoir” a place that helps you escape from your worries and stress. It should captivate while also being inviting and it needs to be more than just comfortable it should be a place where you feel your best……don’t you think????
