Reflecting tastes, personality and interests, a home is more than just a roof over our heads. It is a sanctuary, a place where we spend our leisure hours, entertain guests and store our belongings. While bachelor pads were once all the rage, an increase in the number of professional, independent women means that feminine, tailored lodgings are fast becoming hot property. Want to transform your bare canvass into an alluring, functional bachelorette pad? Read on to discover what essential ingredients you need.
The best thing about having your own space is that you have full control over everything. Don’t let anyone else sway or shame you; if you have always dreamed of having a completely pink apartment, go for it! Other great colors to play with include pastels, bold blues and white. It’s always best to have a unified color theme for each room, so start by planning in detail what each room will look like.
It’s time to bring out your personality and cater to your tastes. What sort of theme or tone do you want for each room? Popular options include vintage, luxury and feminine chic. Use accessories such as candles, flowers, chandeliers, mirrors and artwork to convey your desired ambience. There are hundreds of blogs websites devoted to home decoration and stores such as Super A-Mart (www.superamart.com.au/) stock a wide variety of homewares and accessories. Be creative, be bold and have fun with the process.
Forget a weights room or bar, a room devoted entirely to shoes is the ultimate feature of a bachelorette pad. Actresses and singers such as Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Jessica Alba are all the proud owners of shoe rooms and you can be one too. Even if you don’t have the biggest budget or largest space available, work with what you have to create a special place for your prized possessions. Make use of drawers, storage systems and shelves, and think outside the box.
Walk-in Wardrobe or Closet
Not a fan of shoes? What about clothes? Give your garments the love and attention they deserve with a walk-in wardrobe or closet. Wander through and feel a sense of pride and harmony as you peruse your items, noting how organized and spacious the area is. Not only is a walk-in closet a jaw-dropper for friends, but it can really reduce stress and wasted time. No longer will you be searching for hidden or hard-to-reach apparel; your wardrobe, featuring lighting, mirrors and drawers, will ensure that everything is easily accessible and categorized.
Study or Home Office
Whether you like to write, read or work from home, a dedicated study or office space is a great addition for your home. Style it according to its function; for a creative, productive environment, have white walls adorned with inspirational mood boards, slogans and artwork. For a peaceful, refined library, seek inspiration from classic literary figures such as Sherlock Holmes and Jane Austen.
