Interior Shutters

Too much sun, she sent me a link to exterior shade cloth.  


Too expensive for something to degrade in weather, look merely satisfactory when new, pass quickly to tacky, even faster to dreadful, and finally get-rid-of-it.  Why spend the money?  Worse, why waste the time?
.
Perhaps, interior top down/bottom up Duette shades inside.  No go.  Her cats would shred them she said.
.
Shutters?  Hers would have to be bi-fold due to space.

She hasn't responded!

Shade the outside, not the inside? A pergola? This is why houses in the Sunny South (had) porches.

comment #1! Bingo!

Yikes! Just what I was going to say! Wisteria on an arbor.....loses its leaves when you want the light.......has leaves when you want the shade....and that two weeks with blooms......oh you have to faint!!!

a pergola or just what Brooke and Steve have done at "Patina Farm" just those metal sticky-outie things to support the wisteria vines (from both sides!!

So good!!

One of my favorite light/privacy solutions was putting an interior shutter in our closet. One of the few things I would do differently if I built again would be to deepen the walls of the living room so I could do interior shutters - I love them!
