I've always fancied shutters on our living room bay window, and I'm sure there were in fact shutters there at some point in time, but sadly they're long gone. Maybe it's my duty to reinstate them one day.
Aside from the romantic connotations of the appearance of shutters, from a practical point of view, they just win over all other window coverings.
Depending on your needs, Shutterly Fabulous shutters can offer complete darkness and privacy when required, with privacy fit or solid panel shutters, control over the amount and the angle of the light with plantation shutters, and the option for full privacy on the bottom, whilst letting the light in on the top with either tier or tier or cafe style shutters, so they really do offer practical solutions for all window covering issues.
I love classic black or white shutters, although natural woods are timeless too. Then again, Shutterly Fabulous can colour match to virtually any colour under the sun which is pretty amazing. How beautiful are these solid ombré shutters?!
When I started writing this post, I was going to maintain that although I love shutters, that I prefer something softer in bedrooms, but this beautiful imagery has actually shifted my point of view on that, so yes, I concede that they look amazing in bedrooms too.
And who knew they could be used over doors like this? These are solid panel tracked door shutters. So striking.
Are you in the classic monochrome camp? The natural wood camp? Or the colour camp? Let me know in the comments!
