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.

Chelsey, who goes by Taste of Coffey on Instagram, is a Boston-based home designer who definitely has an eye for color in her home design. Just one look at her photos shows how she mixes and matches whites, off-whites, and muted shades for a look that’s cozy and natural, but at the same time incredibly stylish.

Chelsey even offered a few pieces of advice for DIYers in Chicago and around the country:

  • Have a color scheme in mind. When you design a room, you can always adjust colors to accessorize it. Make sure to use shades either from your home’s color scheme or ones that will complement it.

  • Be fluid in how you use colors. We picked white shutters and most of our furniture is gray, either fabric or weathered wood. So we decided to mix in splashes of white and color accents.

Not only does Chelsey have a great eye for color, but her use of space in her house is great as well. From the placement of her chairs that guide the eyes vertically to the wall and her beautiful shutters, to the way her shelving lines up perfectly under the window, Chelsey’s home is fashionable, functional, and extremely livable without ever coming close to feeling cluttered.

As our contest winner for Fall, Chelsey will receive a gift card to a great restaurant in Boston, in addition to featuring her designs here. To see her entire body of work, click over to her personal site at
