Move over man caves, the she shed is here! Transforming utilitarian garden storage into a cosy garden getaway space, the she shed provides a special place to relax, enjoy your hobbies and be surrounded by your favourite things.
What is a she shed?
Just like the man cave was touted as a special man-only area filled with everything a guy could want to unwind away from the demands of family, the she shed does the same for the lady of the house. Once just a home for the garden tools and lawn mower, humble sheds across the country are now getting a fairy tale transformation into a stylish private sanctuary of your very own away from everyday stresses.
What kind of décor do she sheds have?
While the typical man cave tended to be full of beer, video games and big TVs for watching sports without interruption, she shed decors trends towards a more feminine style of relaxation – think cosy armchairs with blankets and cushions, scented candles, a good book and a glass of wine. However the most important purpose of a she shed is that it’s a place specially for you and your favourite things, whether those fit traditional norms or not – make it your own unique space!
What’s the best way to fragrance a she shed?
She sheds are by and large pretty small spaces, so you don’t want to overwhelm them with fragrance that’s too powerful for their petite dimensions. Our little Earth Secrets Reed Diffusers (£6.50) are ideal for scenting smaller rooms and the nature inspired fragrances will perfectly complement the she shed’s garden surroundings. We recommend charming floral Rose & Lily, delicate and sweet Poppy & Pink Orchid and fresh, calming Cotton Mist.
Scented Candles can also be a wonderful way to relax and unwind with their gentle, flickering light creating a cosy ambience. Our range of candles from The Scented Home (£13.00) offers a wide choice of fragrances so you can find something that just to your taste, whatever your favourite kind of scents. Create a magical woodland retreat with the scent of Enchanted Forest, escape to rich and enticing exotic lands with Moroccan Spice or relax into the opulent floral scent of Jasmine & Tuberose.
If you want your she shed’s fragrance to add a quirky décor element as well as beautifully scenting the space, our patterned candles in monochrome jungle print Botanical Retreat (£18.00) or colourful abstract design Rainbow Safari (£18.00) could be just what you’re looking for. For a delicate and nature-inspired pop of colour, the Life In Bloom collection’s Floral Reed Diffusers (£22.50) are a wonderful addition to any space. These colourful diffusers feature real gypsophila stems dyed to match and give a beautifully elegant and fun look to a room.
Now - time for you to rehome the empty plant pots and garden spades, and create your own fabulously fragranced, creative and calming she shed sanctuary away from it all!
