The Luxurious Mirage Super Yacht
Here at the New England Shutter Company, we are privileged to work with leading interior designers around the world on an array of breathtaking projects. One of our most memorable projects saw our bespoke shutters transform the interior of a luxury yacht into an award-winning living space.
Working with Design Unlimited, an innovative yacht design studio, we designed and custom manufactured these stunning Faux Leather ‘Baby Ostrich Putty’ Manhattan shutters with custom sized stiles and shaped corners to match the unique detailing on the yacht windows.
The MIRAGE’s exceptional refit by Design Unlimited was highly commended at the World Superyacht Awards 2016 after winning up the coveted Neptune trophy in the Refitted Yachts category.

Shutters in Monaco
We met with a London designer whose private client in Monaco had a specific brief for Sliding Track Shutters. The owner requested maximum client privacy in their dining/bar area and beauty spa/salon for their exclusive members-only club. Their vision was to create the appearance that the shutters were floating, albeit suspended on metal arms… a new endeavour for The New England Shutter Company.
Nick flew to Monaco for the day to measure on site. He designed the bespoke aluminium metal arms and supplied tracking to create a truly unique look for our Manhattan style shutters. The large shutters stiles were customised at 42mm x 90mm, so the depth of the stile matched the width of the blades (89mm). In essence, this created a ‘frame’ around the sliding panels. At the request of the client, we customised their paint colour using ‘fire retardant paint’.

Sloane Street Shutters
We recently designed and installed these bespoke shutters in an exclusive office development in Sloane Street. The stunning space is to be a gymnasium, library, treatment rooms and coffee shop with a ‘club’ style. These dark brown distressed faux leather panels work perfectly with the distressed wooden floors and some classic leather gym equipment to create the look.
The owners requested screening to ensure their staff have privacy from passers-by on the street, our director Nick worked closely with the client to create the ideal solution. The shutters are huge fixed panels which required special hoists to lift them into place. The unusual 175mm blades are fixed in a down position and the stiles and rails (the framing) are 100mm square box sections. The panels are resting on the floor, held in place with strong hooks attached to the walls.
Creating A Beautiful Bay Window
One of the beautiful things about having bay windows is the light and airy environment that they create. Yet, with their angled structure and large areas of glass, your living space becomes more exposed and they can seem challenging to dress.
With our design expertise and highly skilled fitters, we work with our clients to create the perfect set of custom shutters for their home.
We recently installed these classic White Collections Shutters for a client in West London. The client chose to have flat stiles with no moulding detail, with 89mm blades, in a Bright White paint colour.
While the shutters look stylish and chic, this shutter configuration is quite unusual as the widths of the panels are different across the bay and follow the line of the window glazing bar. This provides more versatility to open the middle panels and fold them back when desired.
The effect is simple and clean, with an elegant, traditional feel that also allows our client to control the level of light and privacy in their home.

Designer Inspiration; London Design Festival
Running between 17 - 25 September 2016, The London Design Festival is all about showcasing the bustling city as the design capital of the world. With over 300 exciting events planned to highlight not only British designers but talent from around the world, we wanted to follow the festival’s spirit and celebrate our creatives here at The New England Shutter Company.
Our Founder/Director, Nick Garratt, has a very hands-on role with our client projects and as a result, The New England Shutter Company is at the cutting edge of shutter design.
When the award-winning architectural firm Leroy Street Studio approached Nick to design a unique shutter for their project renovating a large Manhattan townhouse, they together created the beautiful New York design.
Featuring wide blades with a deep, angular edge profile, our New York shutters bring new focus to windows, screens, room dividers and sliding doors.
With a unique concealed tilting mechanism, hidden within the stiles and available in three different blade sizes; 74mm, 99mm and 125mm, our shutters a true work of art. Finished to order, they can be left as natural wood, stained, lacquered, oiled, or painted to match any colour. Or for truly opulent feel, they can also be covered in faux leathers, faux suedes or fabrics.
A Dramatic Bedroom Makeover
Transforming your bedroom doesn’t always have to be a long, laborious process. You can completely change the look of a room by making some small changes.
We recently installed these unusual Manhattan design bedroom shutters in a beautiful home in central London. Our client wanted to create a more grown-up feel for a teenagers bedroom in her home. The choice of the solid Tulip wood shutters covered in luxurious Novasuede Teal fabric added a touch of colour and style, while the 89mm blade allows for maximum light.
These statement shutters are both practical and a fashionable. A feature that proved to be a simple, yet effective solution for redecorating our client’s living space.
Here at the New England Shutter Company, we love to share the success of our agents from across the country. This month we are proud to reflect on the results of a project carried out by our team in Cornwall.
We successfully introduced our shutters to one of the prettiest and most exclusive parts of Cornwall, Roseland Peninsula. Working with the staff at The Rosevine Hotel, our team installed beautiful New England Design shutters on bi-fold tracks in the hotel’s restaurant. Our shutters offer the hotel guests a sophisticated setting for fine dining while framing the picturesque sea views that stretch across Gerrans Bay.
TNESC warmly welcome Bath and West Shutters as their new agents, who are continuing to install beautiful shutters in Cornwall and the West Country.
