The concept behind our ‘boudoir moments’ campaign started in the 18th century in France. ‘Boudoirs’ were private sitting rooms for ladies to bathe and dress in close proximity to their bedroom. The whole idea of having a dedicated area to pamper yourself was considered a sign of nobility. We list our favourite ‘boudoirs’ throughout history.
Marie Antoinette’s boudoir was located in Fontainebleau Palace in France: the beautiful room was created for the Queen in 1786 and was designed by the Rousseau brothers. It contains some outstanding pieces of furniture such as a barrel-topped desk and trough-shaped table inlaid with mother-of-pearl.
Empress Maria Alexandrovna
The boudoir of Empress Maria Alexandrovna can be found in the Winter Palace in Russia. The sumptuous room was created in the early 1790s. Its walls are decorated with marble pilasters from Rome. If you are visiting the beautiful Winter Palace in St Petersburg and want to indulge yourself to a pampering session please visit our spa in the Four Seasons hotel.
The boudoir of Queen Victoria is in Osborne House in the United Kingdom: the most modern of all boudoirs: this room was rebuilt for Queen Victoria when Osborne House was acquired in 1845. If you are in the UK visiting any of the Royal residencies you can experience your own Omorovicza pampering session in one of our treatment rooms at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane or Liberty.
