Shutter Style

Tracey's husband, Richie, built Nantucket-style shutter doors to separate the study from the living room. Positioned on a salvaged barn door track, the doors easily close for complete privacy. Bonus: When open, they add distinct style—like one-of-a-kind artwork.

The study provides a comfortable place to curl up with a good book. It's furnished with a wicker settee and armchair, playful sea star-print cushions, and striped bolsters.

Architectural stone: Eldorado Stone. Windows and doors: Marvin Windows and Doors. Fabric: Robert Allen. Tables: Somerset Bay. Rugs and storage ottoman: The Company Store. Radiant heating: Uponor. Paint: Valspar.
