Painted Shutters

Pin it button big

We stumbled across this photo on morguefile yesterday. It made us wish there were more buildings with shutters in our neighborhood. On the right kind of house, painted shutters can add a lot of character...

We grew up in a home with blue painted shutters on the windows. There's something about them that feels simple and unpretentious. With the popularity of floor-to-ceiling windows and modern lofts, shutters seem to have fallen out of favor.

We're wondering if anyone out there has seen painted shutters on a more modern home?
