The Sunburst #ShareYourShutters Winner for Fall 2017

Danielle Micich

Congratulations to the latest #ShareYourShutters winner: Chelsey Rushworth! Her winning submission to #ShareYourShutters features two rooms in her home decorated with beautiful 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 space shows how she combines neutrals and vivid colors for a look that’s welcoming and comfortable, but extremely stylish at the same time.

Chelsey even offered a few pieces of advice for designers in Fort Lauderdale and around the country:

  • Always have a color scheme. When you design a room, you can always adjust colors to customize it. Try to utilize colors from either your interior color pallet or ones that can complement it.

  • Be adaptable in your color usage. I chose shutters that are vibrant white and most of my furniture includes shades of gray, both weathered wood and fabric. So I chose 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 house is on point, too. From the chairs she uses that guide the eyes right up to the wall and her beautiful shutters, to her choice of shelving under the casement window, Chelsey’s home is fashion-forward, practical, and very cozy without ever seeming overwhelming.

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