The Sunburst Share Your Shutters Winner for Fall 2017

Eric Ramsey

Congratulations to Sunburst’s newest Share Your Shutters winner: Chelsey Rushworth! Her winning submission to #ShareYourShutters features two rooms in her home decorated with gorgeous new Polywood interior plantation shutters that beautifully accentuate both her home’s style and her own unique fashion sense.

Neutral Living Area With Shutters 

Chelsey, better known on Instagram as Taste of Coffey, is a Boston-based interior designer who definitely has an eye for color in her home design. A quick look at her home shows how she intersperses both neutral and brighter tones for a look that’s welcoming and comfortable, but with an undeniable sense of flair.

She even offered some advice for designers in Destin and around the country:

  • Have a color scheme. When you decorate a room, you’re always able to play with color to accessorize it. Be sure to pull in colors either from your home’s color pallet or ones that will complement it.

  • Be flexible in your color usage. I picked white shutters and most of my furniture is gray, both weathered wood and fabric. So I decided to mix in pops of white and color accents.

Not only does Chelsey have a great eye for color, but her use of space in her house is fantastic too. From the placement of her chairs that lead the eyes vertically to the wall and her plantation shutters, to the way her shelving lines up perfectly under the window, Chelsey’s space is fashionable, practical, and very livable without ever coming close to feeling cluttered.

As our contest winner for Fall, we’ll send Chelsey a gift card to a great restaurant in Boston, in addition to having her designs featured here. To see more of her work, take a look at her personal site at
