What Houzz contributors are saying:
How is this all relevant to the abodes of today? Here you can see a simplified interpretation of classical architecture. There are four very simple square columns, and pilasters against the wall, each with a base and a capital. Two flat bands above the capitals imply an architrave and a frieze, while the trimmed fascia gives us the cornice. The gable face provides the basic pediment.
I love the uniform look when all the windows on the front of a home have plantation shutters. Great curb appeal! If you want to soften the look of your shutters in some rooms, such as bedrooms, feel free to add drapes or a valance on top of your shutters. They’ll give you all the sun control and privacy you need and leave you free to add whatever decorative treatments you like.Do you have plantation shutters in your home? If so, have you added fabric treatments on top or do you like the look of shutters alone?
