Make Yourself at Home: Girl Cave

Girl Cave

No Sunday Best this weekend, I'm afraid. Truth be told, I've spent my whole weekend in jeans (yes, jeans!) busy with an exciting project. Ever since I started on the road towards opening Wayward Daughter I've been working out of our little study, which is little more than a broom cupboard and was actually supposed to be Adam's Man Cave... a silly name drafted up on a gin fuelled evening with friends. Only since Wayward Daughter is already off to a flying start, I thought it was time to set up WD HQ... so to speak.

 On Friday I recommissioned our sparsely used dining room, made a trip to Ikea and then spent the whole weekend priming and preening. Its not quite there yet but it already feels like home. Adam has already christened it my Girl Cave, which is really quite fitting. There are so many pastel colours, the room is practically oozing Estrogen.

My guilty pleasures thus far have to be sticking pretty pictures on the wall under the guise of inspiration and bulk buying stationary. This is the beginnings of my wall of Wayward Daughters - As you can see Z Berg, Annie Monroe, Megan Fox and Fran├žoise Hardy have already made the cut.

Would you believe if I told you all of those note books came to £2.25? I nipped into Asda for a pint of milk and there they were, 25p for a pack of five!

  27. Every lady needs her own girl cave full of inspiration, especially if it happens to be also her working place! "And you know one can dream so much better in a room where there are pretty things"... ;)

    My husband's man cave is going to have to move into my craft room very soon so we can have a guest room. I wonder if I should tell him? ;-)
