You, Too, Can Have a Gorgeous Garden Shed—Here’s How

ELLE DECOR Logo By Laurel Benedum of ELLE DECOR | Slide 1 of 12: Undoubtedly, you could roam the entire world and never come across a garden shed quite like the one owned by Bunny Mellon. Often referred to as the queen of green, the late heiress and landscape designer had an unparalleled eye, and her impressive greenhouse, which sat secluded in her walled Virginia estate garden, is something most people could only aspire to in their own gardens. (She also designed sheds for others, of course, such as the one pictured above.) But even if your space is not grand, you can still adopt Mellon’s ethos when it comes to appointing your own potting shed at home. Her aesthetic was to exude glamour yet keep the feel of a living, working garden space. So while your own shed might not have walls painted with trompe l’oeil scenes, you can still nod to the garden-chic legend. Read on for the prettiest inspiration and design hints for your next backyard project.
