Shout outs to the latest #ShareYourShutters winner: Chelsey Rushworth! Her winning submission to #ShareYourShutters shows two rooms decked out with gorgeous new Polywood faux wood 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 home designer with a penchant for stylish color schemes. Just one look at her home shows how she mixes and matches whites, off-whites, and muted shades for a look that’s cozy and natural, but at the same time incredibly stylish.

She even has a few pieces of advice for DIYers in Austin and around the country:

  • Have a color scheme in mind. When you go about decorating a room, you’re always able to adjust colors to accessorize it. Make sure to use hues from either your home’s color pallet or ones that will complement it.

  • Be fluid in your color usage. We use shutters that are vibrant white and most of our furniture includes shades of gray, both weathered wood and fabric. So we chose to mix in pops of white and color accents.

Not only does Chelsey pick some fantastic color combos, but her use of space in her design is just as good. From the chairs she uses that guide the eyes right up to the wall and her plantation shutters, to the evenly-spaced accessories in her shelving, Chelsey’s home is stylish, functional, and very livable without ever seeming overwhelming.

As our #ShareYourShutters winner this season, 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, visit her personal site at
