Shutters…a design lesson

Just as every human life needs purpose, so do, in my opinion the elements of design – a purpose other than simply decorative.  Traditionally, shutters served a practical purpose.  They were hinged and equipped with latches so that they might be secured across doors and windows to provide privacy or protection.

In the process they become decorative as well – especially when splashed with COLOR!
