    To be honest… I’m so sick of hearing “Pop” from designers, I want to hurl! Pop of color… pop pop pop! What did they say before that? I can’t even remember! 🙂

    It is! A girlfriend and I decided that it was okay as long as women had a complimentary room. We like the term “lady lair.” 🙂

    I vote for the colors of your pie chart! By coincidence, I am retro-re-decorating my living room with these same colors. I suppose it is my “lady lair,” but my family keeps barging in. Oh well.

    I’m sick of the term. Just wanted to make that clear. It sounds like a phrase invented by TV home improvement metrosexuals trying to compartmentalize everything. YUCK!

    As a linguistic anthropologist, I have become VERY interested in the proliferation of all of these “man” type terms. I actually had one of my classes list all the related words they could think of. There were words like moobs, murse, bromance, mantiques. Lots and lots of them! I am hoping to write a paper on their recent upsurge in usage. I have my theories, some of which have to do with changing gender roles. However, I won’t hop on my anthropological soapbox and bore you all! 🙂
