Interior design is the art of blending style and function in order to make your scheme work, and one detail that’s often overlooked is how to dress your windows.
According to Ali, interior designer and founder of the Cotton Mills Design House on Infirmary Hill, Truro, shutters have been very fashionable in recent years, and for good reason. The benefits of incorporating shutters into your interior are many; besides being stylish and offering a streamlined look, they also offer insulation properties and a real sense of privacy, at the same time allowing natural light to flood in. They can also block the light out – a real plus in the bedroom – and pictured here, Cotton Mills have just launched a new style of shutter with dim-out blinds. With unrivalled versatility and bringing a contemporary edge to any interior scheme, it’s really no wonder that shutters continue to prove so popular.
