White plantation shutter doors open to a radiant indoor/outdoor room with stunning white furnishings and tropical foliage. A shingled roof and detailed border give the home's exterior a charming, unique quality.
The natural bamboo floor and wicker tub surround gives this bathroom a unique cabana style. Wall niches provide space for a built-in vanity with a wicker backsplash and a dresser while plantation shutters provide privacy from the backyard.
This contemporary bathroom features cabinetry, doors and window louvers made from locally sourced wood. Glass tile walls create a soothing backdrop against the sleek tub and floating vanity. The home uses low-flow and oxygen-infused plumbing fixtures to reduce water consumption.
Oversized windows framed in plantation shutters are a playful alternative to a conventional headboard. The open framing of the iron bed keeps the view unobstructed yet still offers enough weight to visually ground this master bedroom.
Here's a tropically inspired living area where plants bring the outside indoors and lighten and liven up the dark woods and neutral tones in the space. Multiple materials -- heavy stone, marble, wallpaper and wood -- team up to create a nuanced room. Plantation shades allow rooms to be separate or together.
A classic master bedroom is equal parts masculine and feminine featuring a soft blue color scheme with a slightly nautical feel. Iconic furniture pieces, such as a Windsor chair, Shaker-style side table and an iron bed, ensure this room’s timeless appeal.
From classic navy and white throw pillows to the heirloom art hung on the wall, this bedroom is punctuated by nautical accents. Be sure to balance classic color schemes with lighter tones, such as the pale blue wall color and the pastel blues in the bedspread, to avoid creating a look that feels too thematic.
A thick growth of yellow flowers, ornamental grass and shrubbery creates a lively and colorful border for the gravel driveway winding toward this plantation home. The spacious yard and natural decoration create an airy feel.
The highlight of this room -- a built-in stone plants holding vibrant plants -- brings the outdoors in with a tropical touch. Plantation shutters just beyond open into a large bathroom set just off a guest suite. Rich hardwood floors connect the doors and trim together in a beautiful way.
Situated on a mountaintop outside Charlottesville, Virginia, Monticello, a 5,000-acre plantation, was the home of Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, third president of the United States, and founder of the University of Virginia.
