A Chic Cocoon is a warm embracing space into which to escape, one that celebrates your inner woman. If it feels like you are constantly fretting about other people's lives, trying to smooth waters, and silence your own needs and wants, you probably could use a room of your own. So many women have no idea who they are under the layers of upbringing, demands to hide anger and hope. We’re often encouraged to be happy with crumbs. How many women do you know who are proud to share how little they take for themselves?
Grab your selfish before the Sell By date passes.
Embrace the golden rule of life. First say yes to you. You inner juicy bits are thirsting to burst forth.
Give generously to you, and it will be easy to be generous with others.
Schedule time in your calendar-- your own playtime-- when you can be free to be you.
Make it a space that reflects all you hold dear. A room or a corner to journal in or eat the peach of life. Idleness is a gift we need to claim. Honor that space by layering your spirit, soul and love all over it. Bring joy into your time and you will leave feeling refreshed and whole. Your Chic Cocoon is an ode to you, so pull together items that have meaning. If you don’t have meaning in the furniture, choose function. Try to add a layer of pizzazz to disguise the case of the big uglies. A coat of paint, a couple of scatter cushions, some art & fabulous bits can turn basic boring into a room you will not recognize.
Don’t worry about the size of you room or budget. It doesn’t matter. A beautiful room starts with an abundant attitude. You can make a space shine with a little imagination, skillful shopping (in or outside the house) and some elbow grease.
