>Shutters Add Beach Cottage Charm

>

Coastal Living

Exterior shutters add a touch of character to a beach house and we find them simply charming.

The windows to your home ought to be a reflection of your style. 
Shutters are a fun way to add pops of color to an otherwise monotone exterior. Teal, pink, green…all extremely delightful colors for some shutters!

Custom
wood shutters add oomph to so many architectural styles and can be
customized to suit just about any taste. It's easy to trace a simple pattern on wood to create your own beach-style shutters too.

We found some cute shutters around our coastal town plus lots of inspiration across the Internet to share with you today.
