SILENTLY SHUTTERED

There is just something about a shuttered window or door that is so romantic to me! I fell in love with the whole concept years ago (and I mean years) in Greece, and the practical applications are so wonderful I'm amazed it does not get implemented more often. Talk about a black out shade! No light, no noise, no cold, no heat - why don't we do this more often? This summer, while in St. Barts - we weathered the wrath of Earl. Completely shut in behind the three inch think storm shutters - black as night and quieting the deafening wind, I felt safe and secure through the storm. So nighty night - sleep tight.
