Hemingway Interior Shutters

The movie Hemingway & Gellhorn staring Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen premieres this week on HBO. One of the opening scene takes place in the famous Sloppy Joe’s saloon. Interior shutters stream light through the windows into the Key West watering hole to illuminate some of the movies most memorable scenes. Wood traditional colonial shutters on the windows and plantation shutters on the doors were supplied by Horizon Interior Shutters. A more sophisticated decor is presented shortly after with plantation shutters inside the Hemingway house.

An interior shutter unit manufactured to such close tolerances will insure the best overall fit. Standard size shutter panels are made in fixed sizes and usually post-production trimming to fit the window.
