Sí, era lo que buscaba. Todavía me siento tentada a usar persianas, estuvo fabulosa la sugerencia, sin embargo describe una escena exterior y creo que contraventana se aplica. Gracias por el trabajo. :)

ventanas con persianas


Explanation:

Tal como dice Alfpach puede ser "persianas cerradas", pero también puede ser simplemente "ventanas con persianas". Esta última opción es la que yo elegiría.


"A shuttered window (1)has sutters fitted to it.(2) has it shutters closed.

(Collins Dictionary)"

Saludos.

Explanation:
Ampliando mi sugerencia:


- Otra opción: Persianas en las ventanas.

disagree  boni: Shutter is contranventana, but not shutttered. That would be: ventanas con las contraventanas echadas.
