Today’s design trends are perfectly suited for wood-stained plantation shutters. They offer the classic durability and features of all shutters, with the added on-trend warmth that comes from organic finishes that bring the texture and feel of the outdoors inside your home. They work beautifully with the all-white, farm-house look that has taken over interior design. You might think of wood shutters as the choice for a traditional, possibly dark library or study, one with wood bookshelves and leather furniture and possibly a fireplace. And while they fit wonderfully in such a setting, they also work wonders in a much lighter, more modern context.
Before & After with Wood
This Vestavia Hills home office Before and After story shows what an impact wood-stained shutters can offer. Shown below, the before image of this room shows the faux white wood blinds in combination with white sheers. The homeowner was going to take advantage of the high ceilings to create a light and airy workspace and painted the room White Dove by Benjamin Moore. The wood blinds add a crisp contrast to the white walls and add warmth to the space.
