In Shed Style, Selina Lake reveals how even the smallest garden can be home to an outdoor retreat.
From the traditional gardener’s potting shed to a writer’s cabin to an artist's studio, Selina explores sheds, cabins, huts, greenhouses, pods, and all manner of garden structures, providing ample inspiration for anyone dreaming of their own outdoor hideaway. She reveals how any existing shed, cabin, or outbuilding can become a versatile work or social space rather than just somewhere to store the lawnmower. If you are short of space, as so many of us are nowadays, a garden office, creative space, “she shed”, or work pod can provide a perfect solution. A greenhouse or potting shed will appeal to keen gardeners, while a cozy shepherd’s hut, perhaps with a wood-burning stove, can work as guest accommodation. In Shed Style, Selina reveals how to create the shed of your dreams, presenting hundreds of fresh ideas for decorating and styling both the interior and exterior as well as suggestions for lighting, fabrics, furniture, and other accessories. Shed Style is perfect for anyone who wants to make the most of their outdoor space.
