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.
They used to be with fixed slats, colored in in green, blue or eventually white. Now, you can mostly see brown shutters, but, people who recently bought or restored old stone houses decided to make the shutters as original.
Below there’s a sneak peak into beauty of Montenegro coast…wild and vintage.
And some ideas fro US :)
Don’t you love them too???
