Sheds are no longer neglected buildings at the end of the garden. As shown in this book, they have become an area of our home to be discovered by creative designers who see the garden as an extendable space of the home, whether in the heart of the city or in a larger rural setting. Today's sheds are stylish, innovative and elegant and can be used for a multitude of purposes. They can be artists' studios, writers' retreats, children's playgrounds or teenage dens, entertaining spaces, log cabins or garden rooms, or even just a traditional humble shed used for storage and plants but revamped with more stylish and decorated overtones.

Using over 50 real examples from around the world, some simple and modest and some really extravagant, this book helps inspire and instruct the reader on how to create your own special space. The owners themselves describe how they have created their own private hideaways and Jane Field-Lewis provides insightful style notes and comments based on her conversations with the owners, architects and designers. She tells you how to create your shed depending on how you want to use it, and then how to make it stylish as well as useful. An intrinsic part of their charm is that normal decorating rules don't apply and this gives the owners the freedom to express themselves in a different way without necessarily following any fashion or trends. Recycled, vintage and precious items are mixed with new, functional and practical ones. Jane Field-Lewis covers all these aspects in a warm-hearted way. The stunning photographs are accompanied by informative captions to help the reader design and decorate their shed on a more practical level. This is the book to help you create an inspiring space.
