Beautiful shutters have always been my favourite way to dress a window.
I love their timeless appeal and sleek lack of fussiness. I also think they look very classic and adapt well to their surroundings, enabling a home to look either rustic or elegant, modern or vintage.
I remember staying at a very old and tiny hotel in the south of France having beautiful arched wooden shutters that led onto a little balcony. It was exquisite.
I also recall staying in a very modern sleek villa in Portugal that had lovely ceiling to floor vinyl shutters that worked perfectly to keep out the sun and to keep the villa cool (and coped with my kids sticky hands.)
I do truly believe shutters can work well in all homes from contemporary apartments to sweet little cottages. Let me show you a few examples:
These are long lasting faux wood shutters which
blend the beauty of a real wood look with advanced modern materials to create a stunning and durable window treatment for any room
Aren’t they lovely? The room looks really cosy.
I think in this modern bright white kitchen the vinyl shutters give a really airy look and I love how the lights shines in through the slats. I can imagine too at night or on a grey day how lovely it would be to close of the outside and get snug.
Luxaflex® blinds come in a range of shapes and sizes to suit your individual requirements so you really can adapt them to your home. This arch looks amazing!
They also come in a range of styles. I just LOVE this cafe style which I think is perfect for an overlooked lounge or perhaps a downstairs bathroom.
You don’t just have to stick to white either (though it is always my favourite.) With Luxaflex® Wood Shutters you can simply provide them with your colour reference and they will match it. Now that is very cool in my book – the perfect way to tie up a colour scheme.
Available in wood, faux wood and vinyl, individual to your shape and colour requirements and in a variety of styles, these shutters really are rather fabulous and would work anywhere!
