Last year, the "she-shed" emerged as the female answer to the man cave. Now there's a sophisticated new crop of chic sheds—sunlight-drenched spaces nestled in equally inviting backyard gardens. Here, one lucky owner invites us in.
The name: The Artist's Studio.
Owner: Barbara Adkins, owner of Black Sheep Antiques, takes us inside her nature-filled drawing room.
Location: Harpersville, AL.
Size: 480 square feet.
Out here you'll find me: With a paintbrush in hand.
I also love to: Use the space for hosting dinner parties.
My design inspiration in five words or kess: Victorian greenhouse meets Alabama farmhouse.
Salvaged window count: 48.
I have a serious green thumb when it comes to: Jonquils, oxeye daisies, Lady Banks roses, and garden phlox. Just depends on the season!
If you look closely you'll notice: The windows are hinged across the top so they can open to catch the cross-breeze.
Best junking find: Those blue front doors—that's the original paint!
Here, the magic hour is: Early afternoon. The sunlight just floods in.
This space is best enjoyed with: A glass of red wine.
Barbara says: "You can't beat the view. From any perch, you can take in glimpses of our property's barn, gardens, pastures, and house. It's the perfect lookout point."
