White, Minimalist Home Gets a Sleek Finish with Plantation Shutters

Abigail Sawyer | 30 Dec 2016 | Home Tours

After renting for several years during what her family thought was a temporary move to California, fashion + lifestyle blogger Merrick, of Merrick’s Art, decided to build the home of her family’s dreams.

The family has moved in to their new home and are making it their own, but for months they’ve had absolutely zero window coverings and were ready to cover up.

Just like in her fashion, Merrick’s home has a minimalist, classic sensibility. She has kept her look sleek with all white walls and modern finishes.

Polished Plantation Shutters

Merrick loved the look of wood shutters, but wanted something easy enough for she and her husband to install on their own.

Blinds.com designer Danielle steered them towards the Simplicity Shutters which arrive fully assembled and only need a few screws to be secured to the window frame. She also and sent color samples so Merrick could choose the perfect finish to match her white trim and walls.
