The Sunburst Share Your Shutters Winner for Fall 2017

Blake Jarman

Congratulations to Sunburst’s newest Share Your Shutters winner: Chelsey Rushworth! Her winning submission to #ShareYourShutters shows two rooms decked out with stunning new Polywood faux wood plantation shutters that beautifully accentuate both her home’s architecture and her own personal style.

Neutral Living Area With Shutters 

Chelsey, better known on Instagram as Taste of Coffey, is a Boston-based home designer with a unique eye for matching colors in her decorating. A quick look at her pictures shows how she combines both neutral and brighter tones for a look that’s cozy and natural, but at the same time incredibly stylish.

She even offered a few pieces of advice for designers in Raleigh and around the country:

  • Always have a color scheme in mind. When you decorate a room, you’re always able to adjust colors to customize it. Try to use hues either from your interior color scheme or ones that can complement it.

  • Be flexible in your color usage. I chose shutters that are vibrant white and most of my furniture is gray, either fabric or weathered wood. So I decided to mix in pops of white and color 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 the evenly-spaced accessories in her shelving, Chelsey’s space is stylish, practical, and very cozy without ever looking overdecorated.

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

And if you believe the shutters in your home look beautiful enough to be a winner, post a photo of them online with the hashtag #ShareYourShutters. We want to see another Raleigh house featured as a winner!
