I received this catalog a few weeks ago and realized that the shutter is slowly replacing the door as the decor-du-jour! Look past the clothing to the scenes the designer has created – softly rustic, full of texture, and ready to live in. Shutters create a great backdrop in each of these rooms, offering interest without overwhelming the settings.

These shutters add depth to an already overstuffed bed, and add interest in height to an otherwise low room. The colors are tonal, allowing the texture to really stand out. The great thing about shutters as a headboard (or accessory behind) is that you’re adding a place to hang additional smalls and potential storage space behind!

These shutters may look crammed in the corner, but they do help bulk up a wall, and room, that has an otherwise intentionally-bare look. By keeping the shutter paint rough (original), they don’t compete with the over-sized natural table, stone and wooden walls, or window-turned-mirrow. All of these pieces look like they began their lives outdoors and have only recently been tamed for indoor inhabitance.

I feel like this model is raising a glass to what I’m saying! Cheers to upcycling and recycling shutters – interesting architectural pieces that are ready for their second lives indoors!

Thanks to Soft Surroundings for great style!
