Fresh summer looks on modern shutters
The summer has finally begun and we dream of beach houses and lazy days at the lake. Whether you go on vacation this summer or not, we’ve picked 14 of the best to help transform your urban space into a year-round summer resort.
Colored shutters can make an otherwise ordinary window or door opening pop. Painting your old shutters or installing fresh modern windows can change the outside world of your home. Here are some of our favorite colors in bright colors:
Channel this fresh setting on a southern farm with cheerful blue shutters on your porch. The light blue in front of a white paneled exterior creates a maritime look that we love and sets an inviting tone to your home.
Create an elegant and fresh summer look with long mint green shutters. These door-length shutters from an Ohio house are a great way to add texture and symmetry. Refresh the back or side of your home with a pristine seagreen to flow perfectly and compliment your backyard garden.
Go bold and bouncy with a fabulous robin egg blue. The flower boxes and associated bench give a sweet touch, but the shutters alone are satisfying enough. The contrasting black iron details make the shutters pop open so far that the neighbors can not look the other way.
Blue is the summer color, can not you say that? We love how the combination of a bright primary blue color and a clear white reminds us of the beautiful cliff side houses of Greece. “Summerfy” an interior with unique interior shutters. Choose a color to be the star of the show and clothe the rest of the room in neutral colors for a fresh and youthful look.
There is something about wooden shutters that seems to scream almost summer house beach! Here are a few ways to achieve the look:
White-paneled wood floors paired with dark wood shutters are perfect for a conservatory or cottage. Add a few patterned decorations and throw pillows for a more unconventional look than what was made here.
Another way to stylize dark wood shutters is to attach them to all the windows and doors around an entire room. Create a tropical beach house or a relaxing spa hotel with rich dark wood.
Brighten up a room and accentuate the natural lighting with fresh white shutters. Installing white shutters in a bathroom or kitchen is an easy way to achieve a clean and open look.
Applying the same concept here, this kitchen feels bright and spacious. The best thing about moving venetian blinds is that you can enjoy the summery airy mood as well as customize it for a more private home.
These shutters look and work as both blinds and open shutters. Replace old-fashioned curtains or boring blinds with half-height shutters immediately
Update your cottage by installing some shutters. We love how this beach house mixes and matches hard textured shutters with soft touches like a cream-colored curtain and ruffled pillows. Shutters are also a convenient and functional way to protect your garden furniture from rain and nights.
Flower Box jewelry
Modernize your space and paint your shutters black. You can balance the hardness with a window box of beautiful flowers, as what was done here. You can have fun with it and play different color combinations every few years by repainting your shutters and changing the types of plants or flowers. A simple grass plant with a long stem or white flowers would look just as good.
We love this beautiful shade of Claude French Gray in the bedroom. Try a weathered painting to create a rustic look reminiscent of a European summer house. A soft shade of gray harmonizing with creams and beige tones gives the room a breezy and airy feel.
This Chilean beach house has the right idea to place shutters and door frames yourself. This placement technique offers more privacy, but still the fresh summer look.
We save the best for the end, we die because of the crazy architecture of this house in Monaco. As we take our initially lightly colored concept to a whole new level, Europeans tend to paint their buildings and shutters separately with contrasting bright colors.
