So, okay. We can’t ALL be Lance Armstrong, what, with his multiple Tour de France wins, and his many, many endorsement deals. But what we can try to emulate from Lance, aside from his killer work ethic and killer calves, is his home. Have you ever seen Lance Armstrong’s home? It is simply glorious. Though Lance put his Texas-chic ranch-style home on the market in 2009, it’s nothing short of beautiful in that shabby chic, Southern comfort, over-the-top kind of way. The combination of unfinished and dark woods, plus that brushed concrete floor… to. die. for.
What Lance (er, Lance’s interior designer) knows for certain is that a home like this requires shutters. Real wood shutters are unbeatable in the style & class department. They whisper luxury and sophistication, and Lance’s pad is full of ‘em.
Good news: you do not, I repeat, do NOT have to be a mega millionaire to outfit your home in shutters. Though they tend to be pricier than other window treatments, they’re most definitely more affordable when purchased online. Plus, they last forever, increase curb appeal, and boost resale value. All good things.
If you’re considering shutters, check out how Lance Armstrong’s home has utilized them. Lock ‘em away in the “homes I want to buy after I win seven Tour de Frances” vault.
