A boudoir is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room.

A cognate of the English “bower”, historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a “lady” or upper-class woman, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber, being the female equivalent of the male cabinet. In later periods, the boudoir was used as a private drawing room, and was used for other activities, such as embroidery or spending time with one’s romantic partner.

The Boudoir on this blog will cover everything related to fashion, style, beauty, hair, spa. We will not do embroidery or spend time with our romantic partners in here…that would not be proper!
