A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write
My dream writing shed
A Room of One’s Own is an essay by Virginia Woolf written back in 1929 . It is a feminist text which argues for a space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by men.
Well I am arguing for a literal space to write within a home full of toys and guitars!
Our house is is rather full to the brim. I think to gain a writing space I will have to take to the garden. My she shed/writing shed really would be a dream come true. I just love to write and after years of working in a tiny corner of the kitchen, space to be creative would be blissful.
I have been having a little look on Pinterest (okay that is a lie, who has a little look on Pinterest!!) Ahem. After a few hours browsing I found my dream writing shed inspiration. Well actually I should say inspirations as there are so many beautiful writing shed ideas!
I think my favourite sheds are wooden and rustic looking with big windows from Summit Point Roofing.
I would probably paint it dove grey or a powder blue.
I would have in my shed a collection of things I needed to write; a desk and chair, paper, books, flowers, a lamp and a throw for chilly mornings. It is the space to call my own I would appreciate the most.
I would paint the walls white and have large windows out onto a garden full of flowers. My accessories would be gold, grey and pale blue, calming, neutral and comforting without being overpowering. I would make room for books and flowers of course but light and airy and simple would be what I wished for most.
I would have a rug, pots of lavender to fragrance my shed and of course a comfy chair to sit and dream in…
A place and a space to call my very own.
