Don't Fight the Climate

Wooden shutters allow light into the new master bedroom but can also serve to shut out the Texas heat. The owners set the AC above 80 degrees when they use it, but more often they opt to leave it off and switch on a ceiling fan—there's one in every room—or open the door instead.
