The Sunburst Share Your Shutters Winner for Fall 2017

Lisa Renee Nieberding

Shout outs 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 plantation shutters that beautifully accentuate both her ornate window frames and modern decor.

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. Just one look at her space shows how she combines whites, off-whites, and muted shades for a look that’s welcoming and comfortable, but extremely stylish at the same time.

She even offered a few pieces of advice for designers in Cincinnati and beyond:

  • Always have a color scheme. When you decorate a room, you can always adjust colors to accessorize it. Try to utilize tones from either your home’s color scheme or ones that will accentuate it.

  • Be fluid in how you use colors. I chose shutters that are vibrant white and most of my furniture includes shades of gray, either fabric or weathered wood. So I chose to add in splashes of color and white accents.

Not only does Chelsey pick some fantastic color combos, but her use of space in her design is just as good. From her chairs that lead the eyes right up to the wall and her classic shutters, to the way her shelving lines up perfectly under the window, Chelsey’s house is modern, functional, and extremely livable without ever seeming overwhelming.

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