Boudoir

Definition: Boudoir


Boudoir

n. A lady's private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French verb bouder, meaning "to pout."

Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber, being the female equivalent of the male cabinet. In later periods, the boudoir was used as a private drawing room, and was used for other activities, such as embroidery or entertaining intimate acquaintances.
