Shout outs to Sunburst’s newest Share Your Shutters winner: Chelsey Rushworth! Her winning submission to #ShareYourShutters highlights a few spots in her home decked out with stylish new Polywood interior plantation shutters that beautifully accentuate both her ornate window frames and modern decor.

Neutral Living Area With Shutters 

Chelsey, better known on Instagram as Taste of Coffey, is a Boston-based home designer with an eye for color in her home design. A quick look at her home shows how she intersperses neutrals and vivid colors for a look that’s warm and calming, but with an undeniable sense of flair.

Chelsey even offered a few pieces of advice for homeowners in Charlotte and around the country:

  • Always have a color scheme. When you decorate a room, you can always adjust colors to accessorize it. Be sure to use colors from either your interior color pallet or ones that can accentuate it.

  • Be flexible in how you use colors. We use white shutters and most of our furniture includes shades of gray, both weathered wood and fabric. So we decided to add in pops of color and white accents.

Not only does Chelsey excel at using colors in her design, but the use of space in her home is just as good. From her chairs that lead the eyes vertically to the wall and her classic shutters, to the way her shelving lines up perfectly under the window, Chelsey’s home is fashion-forward, functional, and very livable without ever seeming overwhelming.

As our #ShareYourShutters winner this season, Chelsey will receive a gift card to a Boston-area restaurant, in addition to featuring her designs here. To see her entire body of work, take a look at her design site at
