First, there was the man cave. A place where a guy can escape from the world.
Until now, the only comparable thing women had were oversized powder rooms, walk-in closets, or perhaps a craft room. Until now.
Meet the “She Shed.”
What exactly is a She Shed?
Never heard of a She Shed? It’s a backyard haven for women.
Every woman deserves a shed of her own. Whether it’s a whimsical glass she shed or a simple small she shed — somewhere to retreat for some peace and quiet, to create, write, paint or just enjoy the view.
What is the purpose of a She Shed?
The most common purpose of a she shed is to have somewhere that creates a peaceful atmosphere. Some women swear by soft, muted or pastel colors and super comfy furniture is a must.
She sheds were initially a place to decompress and relax without reality barging in. And by reality, I mean children or husbands.
Somewhere you could grab a good book and enjoy all the girly things – beautiful flowers, fluffy pillows and lavender scents.
Or in my case, mine would be filled with beautiful tropical plants, a comfortable squishy couch, a TV and a wine fridge. I could watch all the chick flicks I want – alone, or even better with a girlfriend.

This she shed by Dot and Bo is a little bit beachy and a little bit chic which I love. Although I might add a chaise lounge and a desk.
