The Diva Lair
Every woman needs a Diva Lair; a place that is liberating and individual, a haven where womanhood is celebrated and energies are renewed. A place that revives the reckless and carefree spirits of youth. This amazing breathing space offers a haven, a feminine sanctuary, that embraces and protects from the chaos outside . . . if only for awhile.
The actual size of the space is irrelevant. Some women etch their signatures throughout every facet of their homes; simple exquisite touches that delight the soul . . . when least expected. While others create a space, a nook, a room . . . that is wholly theirs.
In my mountain home I have created a “Diva Dressing Room.” It is exquisitely mine, and belies the rough beauty of mountain living. Its walls are carved out of a former bedroom, and they shelter my daywear, evening attire, bobbles, jewelry, and even a delicious dabbling of Sex in the City shoes.
In my beloved lair I surround myself with things of beauty, most of which have been collected over the years from consignment and thrift shops, garage, yard and tag sales. Every corner is filled with vintage clothes and perfume and a nostalgic assortment of effects reminiscent of bygone eras.
