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

Neutral Living Area With Shutters 

Chelsey, who goes by Taste of Coffey on Instagram, is a Boston-based interior designer who definitely has a unique eye for matching colors in her decorating. A quick look at her home shows how she intersperses both neutral and brighter tones for a look that’s cozy and natural, but at the same time incredibly stylish.

She even has a few pieces of advice for homeowners in Houston and around the country:

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

  • Be fluid in how you use colors. We picked 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 splashes of color and white accents.

Not only does Chelsey have a great eye for color, but her use of space in her house is just as good. From the chairs she uses that lead the eyes right up to the wall and her classic shutters, to the evenly-spaced accessories in her shelving, Chelsey’s house is stylish, practical, and altogether livable without ever looking overdecorated.

As our contest winner for Fall, Chelsey will receive a gift card to a Boston-area restaurant, in addition to featuring her designs here. To see her entire body of work, visit her personal site at
