Fall into comfort this autumn

As summer fades away, the golden time of autumn dawns on us. Nature reflects its hues of amber and pink while we toy with the idea of hibernation and spending more time indoors. The need to make ones home more cosy and comfortable in preparation for winter also arises and we experience new-found pleasures in trying to catch the last glimpses of sunshine like a kitten curled up near the window.

Autumn is the perfect time to indulge in lazy pleasures such as an afternoon nap, a quiet meditation or simply snuggling up with your favourite book on the couch. It’s in this in-between period that we realise the benefits of a home which accommodate equal enjoyment of its indoor and the outdoor spaces.

“Shutters allow the sunshine and tepid autumn breeze into our homes when welcomed, and just as quickly as the temperature changes, shutters seamlessly protect from the biting chill of cooler weather and evening,” says Karina Palmer, interior designer and marketing director of AMERICAN Shutters®. “They also offer great thermal insulation keeping the warm air inside when the outdoor temperature drops.”

Shutters off-set the beauty of natural and indoor lighting, totally transforming different environments with a simple open or close of the shutter louvres.

AMERICAN shutters’ broad range of shutters complement any decorative style; whether you opt for the warm woody tones and earthy natural grain of the brand’s Selectwood range, or the white and off-white shades of the most popular shutter range, Decowood.

As F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall…” So why not add something new to your home this autumn and make the most of this toasty time?
