The Story of a Woman Cave

Hi friends!  Yes, I know these days it is all about the man cave, but us women deserve a space all our own too.  When I was approached by Chairish, the online sale site for used and vintage furniture and decor to design my own “woman cave” out of some of their products, I jumped at the chance.

Sites like Chairish help you to achieve a collected and layered look to your home.  I know it is tempting sometimes to go out and buy and entire room from a catalog, but I wouldn’t have the same personal feel if you collected beautiful things you love over time.  I have shopped with Chairish several times and been so pleased.  You can search by area, so that makes it even easier.  For my Sacramento readers, there is a section for Sacramento sales.  It is like Craigslist for the design lover!

Now onto my design.  I had several barstool options to use as my starting point for the design. When I found a set of silver faux bamboo stools, they had me at “hello.”  If you have been reading the blog for a while, you know I have a special place in my heart for Chinoiserie.  So, without further ado, here is my design for my ideal woman cave.

Barstools / Bar Cart / Paintings / Rug / Ice Bucket / Highball Glasses

What woman cave would be complete without a bar cart?  And with all the traditional Chinoserie, the modern abstract art is a refreshing juxtaposition.  Add some vintage barware into the mix and I am good to go!

Now this is a space where I could sit back and relax and have a glass of wine or a martini!  If you could dream up your ideal “woman cave” what would it look like?  Would a bar be your spot, or a cozy bedroom with all the luxuries?

Until next time.

Decorating with Vintage Rugs from Chairish

Happy Friday loves!  I was approached by designer site Chairish and challenged to create a room using one of their vintage rugs as the centerpiece.  Challenge accepted!

If you have never heard of Chairish, you can read about them here, as I did an entire post about how much I love the site.  In a nutshell, it is an online consignment marketplace for the design obsessed.  It is basically a Craigslist or Ebay with only the good stuff!!  Amazing, right?

I chose a gorgeous Missoni rug with lots of color as my centerpiece.  You can see sources for all of the products used at the end of the post!

What do you think?  I love it because it has a nice balance of traditional and modern, and has just the right pop of color!

If you have never checked out Chairish, I highly recommend it.  You can find some amazing deals on unique designer decor!

Have an amazing weekend!  I will be working on hard on my patio!!
