I Am Crazy About Shutters

One of the things I noticed while spending time in Basque Country (Spain and France) is that on the French side many many homes had the added touch of shutters. I love them.  Here's a few homes (somewhere in Provence - sorry, lost the link) that I felt drawn to - it might be the shutters.

I think shutters create such a feel that says, "Welcome. It's warm and cozy and delightful inside."  Are there shutters on your home? If so, what color?  My barn has some cute vintage shutters here.


  1. I love shutters, too. I pick them up wherever I find them...garage sales, trash, etc. They add such a welcoming feel to a home.

  2. oh me too...we have them on our home in a barn red...we also have completely different green ones(italian) on the courtyard windows and i love them both...the red one are really used for storm protection and have made such a difference...these are lovely pictures...i adore those sky blue ones and wanted that color but it just didn't fit the hill!


Thanks for visiting my French home and garden. I'm always delighted when my friends leave a comment. xoxo Lylah
