There’s been talk that the natives are restless and demanding equal time! For years, it was popular to give men their own “man cave”, so they have a place to call their own in their home. I always wondered about that because it seemed that if the man was going to have his “own” spot then surely women should have their “own” retreat as well. Originally, I think the concept of a man cave was created to get the man out of the woman’s hair so to speak. Give him his own place to prop his feet without ruining the Baker coffee table, drink his beer and eat peanuts with his buddies while watching the game. Well, the tides are changing folks. Did you know the new trend is the “woman cave?”
This is a photo of the “woman cave” created by Port Washington based Lee Najim for the Hamptons Showhouse which runs through Sept. 2, 2012. He calls this conceptual structure “Herspace”. The designer says he felt the concept is very important in this busy world where women need to find a place to “center themselves”. This idea proves once again that men and women are different animals. Men have a “man cave” to watch games and hang with their friends. Women have ” a woman cave” to retreat and gain peace!
Do You have a place you go to find quiet or relaxation? If not, what would it look like if you did? The idea of relaxing can mean different things to different people. Here are some examples of “woman caves”. Which one would you choose?
Would it be a quiet little reading nook like this?
The way we choose to relax obviously means different things to different people but the most important thing is to realize what you need to relax and create that in your own home! It doesn’t have to be an entire room or building
