Boudoir…what’s the real meaning?

Tuesday, 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 View More

Ever wonder how the word boudoir came into being?
Boudoir- 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???? 

Keep us in mind when you’re ready to update your “boudoir,” we would love to help.

O K A Y!!
 
Now that spring is F I N A L L Y here on the outside, let’s bring some spring time inside with some 
wonderful new wallpapers introduced by Thibaut.

haven’t been a huge fan of wallpaper for awhile but in the last few of years it has gone from hideous and sad to totally chic.  Wallpaper companies have gotten more gutsy and have introduced all types of textures, finishes, exaggerated patterns and modern motifs.  Here are just a few new introductions from Thibaut.  Enjoy…..
