I’m in lust with a new book: “Stylish Sheds and Elegant Hideaways: Big Ideas for Small Backyard Destinations” by Debra Prinzing with more than 200 photographs by William Wright, Clarkson Potter, $30.
Pictured here is a 124-square-foot shed, inspired by midcentury modern architecture, in the Mount Washington neighborhood of Los Angeles. Designed and built by Seattle-based Modern Shed, the shed is owned by Lin Su, who needed more space for entertaining and painting.
Unless we live in a high-rise, apartment or condo, many of us have room for a charming little building like these. It’s really a matter of money and initiative. This book helps with the latter.
