In addition to adding windows and light, Sherrod says shed-owners can take key design steps to make a small space appear larger. "Go light on paint colors and paint the moldings, walls and ceiling all the same color for a seamless effect," she says. "Use curtains or sheers that filter light instead of blocking it out. A tip on making small spaces feel larger is to incorporate smaller-scale furniture."
Floral art by Erin Gregory was the inspiration for the palette in the family room.

A leather ottoman, green glass lamps, sofas and shearling benches add to the comfortable feel in the room designed by Kandrac & Kole.
