Friday Fun: Escaping to your writing shed

I am lucky enough to have a room of my own, a study, in my house. Yet I never stop dreaming of a little dream cabin or writing shed hidden somewhere in a (beautifully tended) garden, out of earshot of the house.

This might be the mansion of garden sheds, from Southern Living.
This looks lovely with climbing plants, but might be a bit too dark for actual writing, from Colorado Nest.
This is more suitable for reading rather than writing, but a treehouse is always lovely. From Bored Panda.
This looks more run-down and probably closer to how my garden might look, from Next Luxury.
Sheds were simply more beautiful in previous centuries, weren’t they? From itinyhouses.com
It’s the colour that makes this shed stand out – plus the little porch for reading (or if you are feeling more sociable). From Life in Sugar Hollow.

  1. Like you, I’m lucky enough to have my own writing room, but the notion of one of these in my garden is tempting. However, I think other people mowing their lawns and trimming hedges would get on my nerves!

  2. Oh, my, now you’re tapping into one of my dreams, Marina Sofia. I would absolutely love to have a writing shed. And you’ve chosen some lovely ones, too. I like the one from Sugar Hollow best, but any kind of writing shed would be fabulous.

  3. I love the look of number one and also number six with its colourful finish…
    I can’t recall if you’ve read Deborah Levy’s The Cost of Living, but after the author separates from her husband she’s given the use of a friend’s shed as a place to write. It’s nowhere near as glamorous as any of these (from the description in the book), but it does the job nonetheless!
