Sunbursts Share Your Shutters Winner for Fall 2017

George Christ

Congratulations to Sunburst’s newest Share Your Shutters winner: Chelsey Rushworth! Her winning submission to #ShareYourShutters shows two rooms decorated with stunning new Polywood plantation shutters that beautifully complement 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 interior designer with a unique eye for matching colors in her decorating. A quick look at her space shows how she intersperses both neutral and brighter tones for a look that’s warm and calming, but at the same time incredibly stylish.

Chelsey even has a few pieces of advice for designers in Minneapolis and beyond:

  • Always have a color scheme. When you decorate a room, you’re always able to adjust colors to customize it. Make sure to use hues either from your home’s color pallet or ones that will accentuate it.

  • Be adaptable in how you use colors. I picked shutters that are vibrant white and most of my furniture includes shades of gray, either fabric or weathered wood. So I decided to add in splashes 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 fantastic too. From the chairs she uses that lead the eyes vertically to the wall and her beautiful shutters, to her choice of shelving under the casement window, Chelsey’s space is fashion-forward, practical, and extremely cozy without ever looking overdecorated.

As our #ShareYourShutters winner for Fall, 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 personal site at
