"In her previous work Shed Chic, Coulthard examined the various structures and functions of sheds, which are used for so much more than storing gardening equipment. Her focus here is on the interiors, showing styles ranging from plain and simple to country, many of which rely on flea market finds in the decor. She provides an overview of each style with suggested furnishings and decorative accessories. Rounding out the information is a detailed look at individual sheds sharing the owners' ideas on decoration and their use as guest cottages, artist spaces, offices, etc. The book concludes with a review of the various options for walls, flooring, heating and power, fabric, furniture, and storage, including a few projects that require simple DIY skills. VERDICT The variety of styles shown in more than 250 color photographs and the advice on how to make a compact space feel spacious will be useful to anyone searching for home-decorating ideas." --Library Journal
