First day waking up with my new plantation shutters and I couldn’t love them more! After lots of deliberation I went for a pale grey with hidden tilts (so no pole running down the middle) and wide slats. Decided to bite the bullet and get them for all the rooms at the front of the house so it looks uniform from the outside. Love how they match the contemporary feel of the house and the grey looks perfect with the black window frames from the outside. Success!
Elizabeth O'Neill Verner (1889 - 1979) Old Tavern, Charleston. Etching. Also known as The Pink House, it was constructed circa 1712, of pinkish Bermuda stone. It is the oldest surviving ale house from the Chalmers Street area. A taverner owned the site until the 1750's, and by the 1780's, it had passed to James Gordon. The house was restored in the 1930's by wealthy Baltimoreans Mr. And Mrs. Victor Morawetz. I can remember the house being, at various times, an art gallery, as well as a private residence. Although the stairs are some of the steepest in Christendom, it is one of my favorite, and most charming, little houses on the planet... The Caribbean roots of Charleston laid bare; I could lose myself in this etching.
Since the moment we moved into this house, I've hated these shutters (left) 😆 The style, and especially the green/blue color. So, once again, my hubby delivered! Got rid of the old ones and built these new ones, and stained them the same color we stained the porch. Loving the new look!
