WHY IT WORKS
The symmetry and simplicity — and, therefore, elegance — of true Georgian Colonial–style homes make them fixtures in affluent suburbs. Practically speaking, working shutters on Colonial homes in the South tend to be louvered to welcome breezes but thwart the sun.
Tara, in Gone with the Wind. Macaulay Culkin’s house in Home Alone. Steve Martin’s house in 1991’s Father of the Bride. In Williamsburg, Virginia, the stately brick President’s House at William & Mary college.
