HOUSE SHUTTERS: 5 MOODS FOR 5 ROOMS

Shelby Stanley - Friday, October 18, 2013

House shutters have long been admired for their sophisticated street appeal, as they create stylish impact for home facades and exterior windows. House shutters, including aluminum and timber shutters, can be used for both dramatic and soothing effect within the home, particularly when they are chosen as part of a color theme or an integrated interior color palette. 

Consider the relaxing effect of blues:

“From the radiant aquamarine tones of Caribbean waters to the deep indigo colors of the Pacific, coastal-inspired shades of blue are versatile, calming and elegant. Consider creating a luxurious, serene space with a pale blue shade or fashioning a sharp and cool sanctuary by pairing bright turquoise with crisp white. 

Strong blue accents and exquisite artwork join forces with the deep blue of the sky overhead to take center stage…”

1. BATHROOM – SOOTHING


House shutters can transform a bathroom from a functional space into a soothing haven. Blue shutters are used to accent a neutral color palette and contrast against the cool tone of bathroom tiling.


2. DINING - PEACEFUL


Many homes incorporate informal eating areas, yet the casual eating space is often more practical and everyday than a space for calm dining. Light blue house shutters give a casual dining area a peaceful and inviting feel, by combining chic and casual.


3. BEDROOM – TRANQUIL

“Pale blue hues can create very relaxing moods, especially when white acts as an anchor…. Every time you use color, incorporate a lighter shade of that color as well to balance out the color scheme.” M Sierra, Blue Crush: Tranquil Palettes Inspired by the Sea



Blue house shutters can provide the contrast to a white palette to make a bedroom a relaxed and tranquil haven, perfect for those rare extra minutes or on leisurely weekends.


4. LIVING ROOM – CALM


Blue has inherent and natural associations with the ocean and water. A nautical theme for the living room, featuring blue house shutters, creates a calm, purposeful living space separate from other rooms in the home.


5. DEN – SERENE

Solid blue panels take a den from stern to serene.

House shutters continue to rise in popularity. Long coveted for exteriors there is a growing recognition that the streamlined elegance of house shutters can transform interior spaces and create atmosphere. Highprofile shutters, available in luxurious natural timber stains and popular whites provide the right mix of light, contrast and airflow. Highprofile shutters can also be custom ordered for size and color – which can take a home to a whole new level of style.


Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones…it will always stay blue”.  Raoul Dufy

Blues are fantastic for creating a mood in a home and blue house shutters are a perfect way to provide contrast to neutral interiors. Calm, relaxed, tranquil, serene or peaceful. What mood are you looking to create in your home?
