In a historic home like this one, it’s essential to preserve the
delivering what the client has asked for. Collaborating with the client, we chose light
shutters and hardware to maintain the airy feel and avoid stealing the spotlight from the
beautiful accent pieces. To keep the image clean, we chose hidden tilt shutters with no
tilt rods in
front. The top and bottom louver are split to offer better control of lighting and
reduce the heat in the room even more efficiently than dual-pane windows.
A shutter color that was different than the wall color would have
broken up the
plane. Using the same color for the shutters allowed the features to blend and created the
more space. Vertical features like thin, dangling light fixtures and tall shutters draw
the eye up
make the room seem taller as well.
