Absolutely agree with amackinney! The single, FUNCTIONAL shutter is very common in Italy, which makes its representation here authentic to true Italian/Tuscan style.

Love the single real shutter. Am i missing the hinges? If not then they are needed badly to stand the shutter off the wall and get that great shadow line.

Love this also:

5. Use uplighting to highlight landscaping to transform your home's exterior. There's almost nothing more welcoming than a well-lit exterior in the evening. You just want to walk up to the front door and meet these people. Light is used around this Mediterranean-home to highlight the architecture of the home and show off the beautiful landscape design.
