shutters and a sneak peak into montenegro

Some of you know how much I love windows, especially one with shutters. I have a huge collection of window photos,arts and prints. For me it represents open heart and open mind, look into the future, beyond boundaries. As a counterbalance, I’m attracted to old, vintage windows…and shutters. Photo below was taken in Istra – Croatia.

Shutters are the most beautiful detail on the house, especially Mediterranean one. House without shutters looks impersonal and unfinished..if you ask me :)
The photos below are somewhere more continental…but non less beautiful
In Montenegro shutters are part of exterior, and besides they provide privacy and controls the sunlight, shutters also play an important role on the coast because it keeps the windows from the strong gusts of wind and rain.

  1. I prefer to use Plantation shutters for doors and windows as a better option. Also they are eco-friendly.


Always love to know your thoughts. Thanks for sharing
