The she shed is a rising lifestyle trend that gives women a private oasis right in their backyard. It's essentially the female response to the man cave, a haven where women can go to escape and rejuvenate from their hectic everyday lifestyles.
The main purpose of a she shed is to create a peaceful atmosphere, soft colors and comfortable furniture to help set a tranquil mood -- a place to decompress and release stress.
No two she sheds are alike. Owners' aim to design each one to fit in with its surroundings. Here are some unique examples from across the U.S.
The she shed can also serve as a trendy place for storage. For garden lovers, it's a great place to relax in between weeding and planting and when the day is done everything can be put back into one spot.
Where a man cave calls for games, television and football, the women's alternative is a quiet place to spend time focusing on themselves -- a necessity not often used enough these days.
