Congratulations to Sunburst’s newest #ShareYourShutters winner: Chelsey Rushworth! Her winning submission to #ShareYourShutters shows two rooms decorated with beautiful new Polywood plantation shutters that beautifully complement both her home’s style and her own personal fashion sense.
Chelsey, who some may recognize on Instagram as Taste of Coffey, is a Boston-based interior designer with a penchant for stylish color schemes. A quick look at her photos shows how she combines neutrals and vivid colors for a look that’s welcoming and comfortable, but with an undeniable sense of flair.
She even has some advice for designers in Hartford and beyond:
Have a color scheme in mind. When you decorate a room, you’re always able to adjust colors to customize it. Make sure to pull in tones from either your interior color pallet or ones that can accentuate it.
Be adaptable in your use of colors. I chose white shutters and most of my furniture includes shades of gray, either fabric or weathered wood. So I chose to mix in splashes of color and white accents.
Not only does Chelsey pick some fantastic color combos, but her use of space in her home is fantastic too. From the placement of her chairs that lead the eyes right up to the wall and her beautiful shutters, to her choice of shelving under the casement window, Chelsey’s house is fashionable, functional, and extremely livable without ever seeming overwhelming.
As our contest winner this season, we’ll send Chelsey a gift card to a great restaurant in Boston, in addition to featuring her designs here. To see her entire body of work, take a look at her personal site at TasteofCoffey.com.
And if you believe the shutters in your home look awesome enough to be a winner, share them on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #ShareYourShutters. We want to see another Hartford house featured as a winner!
