At last after two months of waiting, our shutters have been installed today!!
For two months we have had very strange looks from passers by obviously wondering why we had no curtains!! The couple who run the local village pub actually asked my neighbour if the cottage was a museum!!
It did take a lot of soul searching for me to agree to shutters, I will be honest, for someone who adores fabric it was not an easy decision. It was helped in part by my friend Liz Morris who has the most stunning property filled with gorgeous French antiques and painted furniture to die for! She has beautiful shutters in her home and we loved them when we saw them. We really hoped we could pull off the look.
We had them painted in Lichen by F&B of course, I love their chalky pastel colours and I always think they suit period properties,
As you can see I have already set to work with the lavender hearts, sorry, couldn't help myself!! Any handles or knobs (so to speak) are not safe!!
Hope you like the shutters, we are really thrilled with them, it was a gamble for me personally but I am so pleased we decided against covering up the original windows with curtains. Have a great weekend everyone.
