Shed Style

I received a copy of Stylish Sheds by Debra Prinzing from the publisher in the summer. I have mentioned before that I really struggle with writing book reviews (which is rather unfortunate since I am a fervent reader) so for this one I will simply say what I think:

The book is gorgeous. It's loaded with photos of all sorts of sheds that are used for all sorts of reasons in an array of styles with lots of detail shots. Gardening, art, writing, hiding, thinking, playing, napping, eating, meditating, parties. You name it, someone is doing it in their shed!

Debra Prinzing is a superb writer. William Wright is an excellent photographer.

The stories of the sheds and their owners/creators are inspiring and cover everything from the practical to (what I would call) the spiritual aspects of creating a room of one's own.

When I first received the book, I poured through the photos. Since then, I have been slowly devouring it, story by story. I don't really want it to end. I keep finding more ideas and inspiration that confirm my desire for uniqueness over conformity, and delight over resell value in my own empire.

In summary: it's lovely.
