A Childhood Interior Design Dream Come True

For most of us, memories of the family home we grew up in evoke feelings of warmth, comfort, and security. Whilst much of this nostalgia focuses on moments such as special holidays, family get-togethers, and everyday routines, we don’t pay much attention to the backdrop on which these memories play out. The enveloping softness of a lounge sofa, the stature of the dining table, the presence of art pieces, and the gentle light that bathed our beds, but our parents’ interior design and décor choices imprint our minds and, for some of us, influence our choices when we, as adults try to replicate that same warm, welcoming feeling in our homes.

This is most definitely true for Sume Loubser, who, designing the interior of her first home in Durbanville, Cape Town, leaned into the choices that her mother, Marlise made in their family home. ‘Having grown up in a home with shutters, it became a cherished dream of mine to someday adorn my own home with shutters and blinds,’ says Sume. ‘So, when my partner and I purchased our first home, we contacted AMERICAN shutters, the same company my mother trusted.’

Sume chose to install three AMERICAN shutters’ products in her new home: silk white Decowood Shutters in her bedrooms, silk white Fauxwood Blinds in her kitchen, lounge and stairwell, and a pearl white solar-PVC Roller Screen on their north-facing lounge sliding door. ‘The quality and craftsmanship of AMERICAN shutters are unmatched, and their unique shutter-like 63mm blind slats create a seamless aesthetic that matches the shutters and radiates charm and elegance,’ says Sume.

The elegant practicality and clean lines of the shutters and blinds beautifully complement Sume’s modern, minimal style, and the roller screen provides much-needed light block and privacy in the lounge area.

‘AMERICAN shutters holds a special place in our family’s heart, with two generations having chosen their exceptional products,’ says Marelise. ‘It is so special, knowing that my daughter valued my design choices and sought to replicate the same feeling of comfort and sophistication in her own space,’ says mom, Marlise.

Sume’s home honours her mother’s design style and choices and is a testament to the timeless value of shutters and blinds. This generational story also recognises AMERICAN shutters’ long history of exceptional service and quality products.

‘AMERICAN shutters has truly made my long-held dream a reality!’ concludes Sume.
