Welcome to the mother of all workspaces: The Jane Club in California caters exclusively to young mothers
Are you a Jane? If your answer is no, A peek into this gorgeous space may compel you to think otherwise. To find the right balance between work and home, California-based Erin Fetherston transformed a 2,300 sqft cottage into a co-working space in Los Angeles that provides a unique support system for mothers juggling their busy careers and domestic lives. If you think living a #MomLife is easy? Think again. “As young mothers, we wanted to rewrite the rules based on our own experience of work and motherhood and create a space in which we could do both successfully,” says June Diane Raphael, mom and co-founder of The Jane Club. June along with co-founder, Jess Zaino executed that moral calling into this gorgeous co-working space.
Step inside and you will be mesmerised by the gorgeous interiors including library-inspired tables, minimalistic paintings by emerging female artists and a playful nursery. “I used light and neutral colours to create an atmosphere of calm and serenity, infusing colour through plants, flowers, and artwork,” says Erin. The Janes ( a term that women here are fondly addressed as) can head to The Study Hall, where they are invited to work with fellow Janes at the long library-inspired communal table while kids retreat to The Nest, a playroom for children. The giant paper-lanterns playfully tied together with Anne Selke rainbow rugs ties captures our interest. To keep the outdoor entertaining as well — what was once a rugged, crusty driveway has transformed into a lively outdoor playground for children. If a long day of work has the Janes beat, they may avail on-demand manicures at the salon and even find quiet recluse at the Quiet Room with meditation sessions. We are feeling empowered already!
