After seeing some “design boards” all over the internet, I was excited to try my hand at Olioboards. These are really amazing opportunities for us to get our creative juices flowing. Time has no meaning when Diva Den Fever hits!
When I saw the competition for my ideal ” Women Cave”, on Olioboard, this Mixtress of the Diva Dens knew she needed to get out her own Spiritual Retreat, and give it her all to win. With the clock ticking ( I had one night to create and a day to catch up and surpass the winning boards) I put my mind in dream mode.
I knew that Woman’s Cave was not the kind of language that translated what I was imagining, so I decided to create my very own Chez Diva Den.
Natural light to stream in, with high ceilings. A terrace , filled with urns, water and orange trees.
A chaise to dream on. And a chandelier to dangle over it.
An easel to paint on. A desk to draw, doodle and write at.
Books, piles of books, to read & be inspired by.
Little tables to hold treasures and marvelous accessories.
Black white beige and grey. Soothing background colors, so I can fill the room with big squares of intense color.
Or just sit looking at the light streaming in, ruffled white curtains blowing in the wind.
A rug to paint on. Object d’art, interesting pillows. A stack of moleskine journals.
I can’t wait to settle in, with a glass of bubbly, a big box of chocolates, pull out a journal and start writing.
A ROOM OF MY OWN. where I can while away the sunny hours…and delve into my desires.
On Thursday morning I sent out the cry asking my tribe to vote for my Den. By Thursday night I knew, my online friends had come through, and I was probably the winner. I smiled with joy on opening my twitter account after I landed in Los Angeles and saw that sweet tweet: @olioboard says: Congrats to @jenniferduchene, our first place winner in the Woman’s Cave #Design Challenge. Check out her winning entry.
What would you do in your Diva Den if you had no budget? What one item is an essential piece that would create ultimate happiness? No idea is too crazy to pass muster…..
