The Shutters of Lourmarin


About the time Therese asked about shutters and exterior paint colors of Provence we went to an art opening that was held in the beautiful street of the beautiful village of Lourmarin.  I brought my trusty camera and the opening became the backdrop for my photographic mission.

It was a lovely celebration of art, drinking a nice little wine from a neighboring village, and Pascal’s brut rosé called Mademoiselle Rose,

and of course, underneath the beautiful shutters of Lourmarin.

Neglected yet still nice to look at light blue shutters.

Superb deep Paris gray on the shutters at a galerie down the street.


These gingham curtains matched to the window pane make a fantastic impact.

This distressed white looks great against a light façade.

Back to the party:

Shutters au naturel.

And one of the hostesses’ and my friend Virginie’s leopard and plastic flower boots need to be included in this reportage.

Thanks, again, Therese, for the inspiration!  Hope you got some back.

    Thanks for all of the lovely photos Jill! Especially interesting to me were all of the different styles of shutters! More than just the classic louvered shutters. Loved the Paris gray colors too. They wouldn’t be right for my house, but I do love them! And really fun were the leopard and plastic flower shoes!!!!
