See ya, hammock! There’s a new way to get away from it all (without actually booking a vacation), and it comes in the form of an adorable little She Shed. The She Shed offers the perfect haven for ladies to craft a slice of paradise right in their own backyard, and they cater to every gal’s needs and hobbies, whether you’re looking for a mini home office, a craft room, an art studio or a relaxing place to plow through that summer reading list and take a nap. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to style your She Shed into the perfect little backyard hideaway. Get your Pinterest boards ready and scroll down to see how we’d style the She Shed for the artist, the crafter, the #girlboss workspace and the lady who just wants to lounge.
HOW TO DECORATE THE WORK SHE-SHED
If you work from home or are in desperate need of a distinct office space, the she-shed is a dream come true. A mini workspace that oozes creativity is just the thing to pursue your side hustle or clock in a few more after-hours projects. Your workspace is a lot more than just a cute chair and pretty pens… although there’s no denying the power of a good organization system. Take advantage of all the natural light you can, and add more light where you need it with a bold statement pendant and table lamp. Keep the decor minimal but stylish, with a color-dipped wall clock, wire baskets for files and a cozy throw blanket.

HOW TO DECORATE THE ARTIST’S SHE-SHED
With a few essential decor pieces, you can totally squeeze an art studio into a She Shed. Give your inner artist free reign and create an artsy oasis with an easel or desk, some comfy seating and plenty of storage to keep your supplies easily accessible. A tray table comes in handy for storing vases full of paintbrushes and a giant fiddle leaf fig tree is sure to inspire some deeply productive painting sessions.

HOW TO DECORATE THE CRAFT SHE-SHED
If there’s anything a DIYer loves — besides an endless supply of craft materials — it’s a perfectly organized craft room. With so many creative ideas up in here, a maker’s gotta have her space to make and a She Shed is the perfect size for a craft room. Start with a table big enough for all of your crafting needs and add enough bins and baskets to keep all of your supplies organized. Never underestimate the power of a pegboard: It’s great for storing sewing tools, painting utensils and everything in between. Complete the decor with chic desk accessories, magazine holders and wall-mounted clipboards for a real-life Pinterest board.
