What colour should I paint my shutters

Let us begin by reflecting on the fact that ‘bureaucracy’ is a French word, and the planning process in France carries its fair share of it, with some very quirky rules and regulations.

So did you know that essentially any change to the external appearance of a property in France requires a permit of one kind or another, even for something as minor as changing the colour of the window shutters in some regions.  

Some towns/villages even have their ‘own’ colours and a definitive no list!
