• About ten years ago the trend for Man Caves reared its head in quite a big way – dark, manly (say it with a Sean Connery accent!) and serious spaces for men prevailed but spaces for gals were left out of the mix. Harumph.

    Thankfully that’s a thing of the past. Now, there’s no denying that She Rooms and She Spaces are as much of a thing He Rooms.

    In our house, The Captain went on a mission when i was pregnant to excavate under the house – in doing so, we created a flat and a She Room sort of a space for me (and my junk he says). It’s more of an oversized cupboard and an adjacent desk which works perfectly for me. For himself, he expanded on his He Room – it now houses wine, booze, his office and spare-me-the-visual pain – a dart board. It’s also where his bajillions of sailing pix and sports whotsits live (and will hopefully stay forever).

    So, today’s post is about He Rooms and She Rooms that have caught my eye…

    Isn’t this work and sewing space sweet? See that cart? It’s from IKEA (via Nevada Furniture if you live here) and i am coveting one in a big way. It also comes in a beaut blue which is what i want it in…

    I love the idea of a room in the garden but since my She Room is also outside and i hardly get to that – the chances of this working for us are minimal 679a7a9e80ae3201618c1218cf5816cc

    A sleek spot somewhere in nature – i could be swayed to share my she space…

      Love the posh Wendy house! My She space is the size of my workspace – a trestle table – surrounded by note boards and a flanked by a metal cabinet full of plain magnets. It’s where my characters live large on walls and I can scribble notes and thoughts about whatever I’m working on – if its a screenplay, I’ve usually got visual references up everywhere and since I write horror, it’s better that they’re not up in the dining area! For me, a good creative space is where my ideas and thoughts – even if they are only half formed – can live outside my head. It’s where my imagination transitions from thought to action.
