Landscape Architecture magazine reviews Stylish Sheds
August 7th, 2009
Wow – a nice, little review popped up in the July issue of Landscape Architecture magazine’s “noteworthy” column.
Stylish Sheds and Elegant Hideaways: Big Ideas for Small Backyard Destinations, By Debra Prinzing
Don’t expect the sheds displayed in beautiful, full-color photos in this book to house a lawn mower and a jumble of rusty tools. Geared toward an upscale lay audience, this book is intended to inspire affluent home owners to rethink what a “shed” can be: Tea rooms, writing nooks, playhouses, and fanciful creations that defy simple descriptions fill the pages.
It’s nice to be noticed. But of course, we know that stylish sheds do not have to be “upscale” or “affluent.”
As long as they are designed with heart and soul, they will bring comfort, cheer and satisfaction to their occupants.
Even still, maybe the review will inspire more landscape architects to incorporate diminutive sheds and shelters into their clients’ gardens!
