April 21, 2023

Spotted (and admired) recently; two ingenious takes on the light-filtering indoor shutter. Have a look:

Above: At the Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse, Studio Dorion (partners Peter Dolkas and Michelle Ficker are Billy Cotton alums) used utilitarian pegboard painted a creamy white to create privacy shutters in a guest room. “We wanted to use a nontraditional light-filtering material for the shutters,” Michelle told The Washington Post. “Part of the concept of our space was to use modest materials in an elegant way.” Photo by Ethan Herrington.
