A Room of her Own:
Women’s Personal Spaces
by Chris Casson Madden
Hardcover: 224 pages
A Room of her Own: Women’s Personal Spaces introduces us to the sanctuaries various women have created in their own homes. Whether it’s a quiet sewing room, a tent in the garden, or even a corner of a busy kitchen, each woman has found a personal space, for nurturing her body, mind and spirit.
The famous (Oprah Winfrey, Maya Angelou and Ali MacGraw) are included with the not so famous; yet all the women lead very busy lives. Artists, entrepreneurs, mothers— each woman offers a glimpse into her life.
Each chapter contains design ideas and creative solutions that we can integrate into our own lives, as we try to cope with the loss of private time and space for ourselves that is a byproduct of our busy schedules.
