Over the past year, stylish she sheds have taken over our hearts and our backyards. These retreats are being used for everything from reading nooks to artist studios to cozy cocktail corners. The anti-thesis to the man cave, these backyard sheds are typically reserved for girls-only activities (think of it as an adult clubhouse). Consider adding one of these special getaways to your backyard and once you decide what you want to use it for, match your design to your purpose by using these paint picks for stylish sheds.

This 10×10 backyard shed and guest room is a haven away from a busy family home! We love the glass doors, large planters and lush landscaping. The paint color used here is Benjamin Moore Newbury Blue, a beautiful, rich, inky blue offset with white trim.

Bring out your sunny side in your backyard! Who said a potting shed had to be brown and dark? We love Better Homes & Gardens’ primary colored shed with its bright pops of blue, red, yellow and white. Did you notice the color-coded pegboard to help organize your tools and potting accessories? Genius and cheerful! Don’t forget to borrow a page from this design and finish your look off with an oversized planter filled with colorful blooms, it really completes the look.

Doesn’t this she shed make you want to take a long, deep, relaxing breath? As much as we love pops of bright and happy color, there is something wonderful about bright, clean white. This reading nook is set up for relaxation — the space is filled with books (look in the windows in the eaves) and comfy furniture to curl up with a good read.

We love the inviting, warm tan and orange color scheme of this she shed. Also, in case you couldn’t tell from the letters on the side of this shed, this place is reserved for R&R. Connect your she shed to your home design by running string lights between the two buildings and like we’ve seen in several of these designs, don’t forget to finish your space off with buckets of fresh flowers (and a sweet dog if you have one!).
