If you’ve only just started to read Apartment Number 4 then you probably won’t know what a huge fan of renowned interior designer Kelly Hoppen I am. I was lucky enough to interview her for the launch of her book Design Masterclass, and I just love her signature style of muted tones and premium fabrics and finishes.
When I heard she was teaming up with window shutter specialist Shutterly Fabulous, I decided to check out how she had translated her interior design DNA to something as simple as shutters. Available in Poplar or Elm wood, these custom-made shutters for windows and doors ooze glamour. I love the look of shutters in a home, but hadn’t really considered anything other than white. But after seeing how well dark wood works (the Kelly Hoppen range comes in thirteen paint tones in high-gloss lacquer or eggshell finish, or one of five overwash wood stains), it’s definitely something I’d consider for the bedroom or bathroom.
I figured you may be unfamiliar with Shutterly Fabulous, so here’s a little background information. Launched back in 2001 in Brighton, the brand now has design consultants in London, Birmingham and Manchester, as well as fitting teams nationwide. If you’re considering wooden plantation shutters for your home, then it might be worth giving there website a visit – especially as they claim to guarantee you the lowest price in the UK.
