At first I didn’t have any idea what I would do with the window treatments. We have lots of windows and live in an area that our summers are really hot. Window shutters serve the function of light control and privacy as well as protection from drafty windows. The shutters also allow us a way to control light more effectively and filter the light as we choose. I didn’t find the shutters especially appealing for the most part… until I started looking at the practical side of maintenance and design.
We replaced the curtains in all the rooms with white shutters. They are a great style statement and the white makes the room look clean and simple with a brighter look.
I hope this post provides encouragement and inspiration as we continue to customize our home.
