Shutters, but what color?/ Les volets , mais quel couleur?

When I move into my french inspired country home (are you listening, universe????) I will most definitely have shutters on the windows.....

but what color????...

I know, I know, does she even have to ask, I hear you say, but hey, I could shock everyone (and myself!) by stepping out of the square and choosing something not as predictable...

Mmm.......let's see ...

Well, there you have it! So which color sings to you???? All I can hear in my head is
"Blue, blue, my love is blue"..........lalalala!

A Bientôt, Gigi 


  1. Beautiful photos Gigi. I love blue best of all, but you have tempted me with the moss green. It is becoming my new fav colour. x

    1. I think if I were to sway,(as if THAT would ever happen!) it would be to the mint :) x

  2. Great! I've been looking for cheap but elegant looking and durable exterior wood shutters. So, if I buy something from you, how does or transaction go? Will you install it yourself in my house or not?

  3. If you set out to make me think today; mission accomplished! I really like your writing style and how you express your ideas. Thank you. outdoor blinds Melbourne
