When a man just wants a little downtime, he’s able to find privacy in his rough and tumble, electronically enhanced and exclusive “man-cave.”
When a woman wants some solitude, where does she go?
To her “she-shed.”
By now, you’ve probably heard of the “glamping.” This phenomenon has taken the phrase “roughing it” to a whole new level of chic. Where one takes a crusty old camper and revamps it, complete with mini chandeliers, hardwood flooring and throw-rugs.
That’s the idea behind a she-shed. It’s the woman’s personalized version of the renowned man-cave.
- Bohemian Beauty
Takes a whole lot of texture and add interest to your shed. Adorn the wicker furniture with throw rugs, patterned pillows and blankets. Hang decorative fabrics haphazardly along the ceiling and walls and fill the place with the warm scent of incense.
- Modern Chic
Incorporates clean, sleek lines throughout, providing you with a sense of minimalism. Paint the space white, open the French doors and let the sun in. With a reading chair here, a pretty (and functional) bookshelf there, and a desk in the corner, your space will look (and feel!) contemporary and fresh.
- Rustic Elegance
This is the well-dressed version of a rogue cabin, combining the rough character of backwoods country with the smart style of shabby chic. A few wooden chairs and a dining table glammed up with paint and sanded down will create a woodsy feel. It’ll be the perfect place to create your artwork and unwind.
- Glass House
When you take a shed and add vintage windows, you have the perfect combination for a greenhouse/gathering place. A daybed with comfy pillows and a comforter or two make this the ideal place to lay down and look at the stars.
There are so many ideas out there to create the perfect “shedquarters.” Have fun with the colour, texture and second-hand furniture finds.
And remember, this is your she-shed: NO. BOYS. ALLOWED!
