The Sunburst Share Your Shutters Winner for Fall 2017

Eric Ramsey

Congrats to the latest Share Your Shutters winner: Chelsey Rushworth! Her winning submission to #ShareYourShutters highlights a few spots in her home decorated with beautiful new Polywood plantation shutters that beautifully complement both her ornate window frames and modern decor.


Chelsey, who goes by Taste of Coffey on Instagram, is a Boston-based interior designer who definitely has a penchant for stylish color schemes. Just one look at her home shows how she combines both neutral and brighter tones for a look that’s cozy and natural, but with an undeniable sense of flair.

Chelsey even has a few pieces of advice for DIYers in Tampa and around the country:

  • Always have a color scheme in mind. When you decorate a room, you’re always able to play with color to customize it. Make sure to pull in shades either from your home’s color pallet or ones that will accentuate it.

  • Be adaptable in your use of colors. We use shutters that are vibrant white and most of our furniture includes shades of gray, either fabric or weathered wood. So we decided to add in splashes of color and white accents.

Not only does Chelsey excel at using colors in her design, but her use of space in her design is great as well. From her chairs that guide the eyes vertically to the wall and her classic shutters, to her choice of shelving under the casement window, Chelsey’s home is fashion-forward, functional, and very livable without ever looking overdecorated.

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

And if you think your new shutters look awesome enough to be a winner, share them on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #ShareYourShutters. We want to see another Tampa house to take next season’s prize!
