I Want One Of These

The phrase - a room of my own - is one I toss out when I want to push my husband's buttons. Actually, through the years it's become a joke between us. But I would truly love to have my own little personal sanctuary filled with my favorite things. A place to work, play, daydream, relax, indulge. Sometimes it's a garden shed and other times it's a dressing room. There are times when I want a private space, and then sometimes I want it to be a fun place I can share with friends.

For now I'll just keep dreaming. These make me smile!

  1. OK, I'll take the 1st one, please. Isn't the blue bedroom Mrs. Kennedy's room at the White House? And, the closet room...perfect! This is just so much fun. Love it!! xx's

  2. Had a playhouse as a little girl ... I so would like one now ... with french doors of course !

  3. I would take the No. 5 AND the white bathroom, please... yes, I want a Boudoir so badly ! But I fear this will stay a dream as well. Thank you for this collection of dreamy pictures !

  4. Now that I have seen these I think I want one too, Please!! fun!1 Kathysue

  5. Like Lisa I too had a playhouse as a girl that my father built. He even hung bright yellow shutter with a matching flower box. ♥ I think those memories fuel the desire to have a special place all my own again. You posted such wonderful spots that would be any girls dream. We must never stop dreaming right?
    Hope your weekend was lovely Rita?

  6. The first one for me too! Lovely post.

  7. Would this be the girlie equivalent of a Man Cave Rita? Without the power tools & half empty bottles of sump oil! These are gorgeous, you have my total permission to have one.

  8. Ohhh that walk-in wardrobe with the piles of shoes on the floor is calling my name! A lovely idea to have a room of one's own...must try to find a little corner for myself somewhere in my house! LB x

  9. I am with your Rita....these are wonderful. I find my need for a special place of my own changes with the seasons. The most important thing for me is to follow the sun. Wherever it rests is where I want to be. You have put together a wonderful collection to dream upon :)

    All the best...Jeanne :)

  10. Oh, I would LOVE a space of my own, just love it!!!

    A great selection here Rita, I am with Marsha, I would choose no.1....although I love the idea of a shed or summerhouse of some kind at the bottom of the garden.

    I would just settle for a corner with a comfy chair and a bookcase of my own most days though....that would be blissful :)

    Happy Tuesday!

  11. I'll take one of each! All these photos are my dreams!

  12. Great images. I too long for a space which is just mine all mine!

  13. Yes, wouldn't it be lovely to have one of those cottages all to yourself? I love the office with the black & white toile wallpaper. Gorgeous!

  14. Rita, I am with you on this one. I will take any of these beauties! I have always been partial to a bedroom of my own but what a treat to have one of these garden 'offices' so to speak!
    Great post!!

  15. OH i so want one of these! These are fantastic examples!!

  16. Hello, my dearest Rita,

    It's catch-up time for me. Honestly, I would be hard-pressed to choose among your choices. I've always been enchanted by the idea of leaving the house to go to a miniature space all my own somewhere in the garden.

    I actually do have a room of my own plus a corner of my own -- all closed in -- where I write and think.

    Hope all is well in your world.


  17. i like a girl who can think outside the box!
    but, i might get a bit lonely in a completely
    separate little house!


I hope this made you smile. I look forward to hearing what you have to say!
