Stylish Sheds and Elegant Hideaways

By Debra Prinzing | Photography by William Wright
Clarkson Potter/Random House, 2008

In today’s sheds, cobwebs have been replaced by lace curtains, rusty equipment with charming antiques, and corrugated walls with cedar shingles and window boxes. As artists’ studios, writers’ nooks, or yoga rooms, sheds have become the perfect place to pursue personal passions. They offer a hassle-free and affordable way to create more space — perfect for a child’s playroom or home office.

Stylish ShedsFor Stylish Sheds and Elegant Hideaways, Debra Prinzing and photographer Bill Wright traveled the country to find today’s most innovative and inviting sheds. Their book features more than 30 of the most inspiring, from Seattle to San Diego to East Hampton and Atlanta.

Some are elaborate, luxurious spaces, and others are delightfully modest. We learn what motivated the owner to create each one and how their needs and interests inspired it, both practically and aesthetically. With an extensive resource section and sample blueprints, readers will be thrilled to realize that in just a weekend, they can transform an ordinary shed into a wonderful new living space.
