One of the most positive elements of shedworking that we always emphasise when interviewed is that it has welcomed women into what had previously been a very male-dominated shed world. The concept of 'she sheds' has really come of age in the last few years and so we're delighted to point readers towards California-based She Shed Living, run by Erika Kotite (author of She Sheds: A Room of Your Own and She Sheds Style: Make Your Space Your Own) and designer Sabrina Contreras. Here's what they say about their mission
She Shed Living is about enjoying a place that is all yours, an escape from your hectic life. Whether it’s a pretty shed, a sunny greenhouse or a private backyard arbor, women’s personal spaces are sacred and essential in their chronically busy lives. We’ve built a website filled with stories, projects, tips and uniquely wonderful products especially for those who seek solace after working and caring for others. Here you’ll find inspiration to build, design and decorate a unique studio or shed. You’re able to connect with kindred spirits – women like you as well as interesting people completely different from you. Sharing and celebrating the backyard/outdoor life is firmly encouraged!They also have their own range of sheds produced in collaboration with A Place to Grow (pictured above). Well worth a long browse.
