    Dream Winner Design Kick-Off

    kickoffheader
     

    Last week, we spent an exciting day with our #DreaminFullColor contest winner, Keri Steckler!

    I loved hearing her plans and getting to know more about her. Keri and her family moved out of their city apartment last fall and are now settled into their new home in the northern Boston suburb of Andover, MA.

    Keri can’t wait to create a colorful, kid-friendly, yet stylish, home for her young family. I remember those same glorious feelings when Walter and I moved into our first home.

    As we sat in the vibrant red chairs in her living room, Keri told us stories about her early room renovations and ideas she has for the dining room. She wants color and style that flows easily from the entry to living room to the kitchen—in time for her to host Thanksgiving this year…no problem!

    Tomorrow, Keri’s coming to our Concord, NH headquarters to meet our team and tour our store. And we’re ready to take on her most important dining room “wishes”, which include blending in her treasured family heirlooms with fresh Company C color & style.

    Check back soon to watch our project unfold…CLICK HERE to learn more about how we chose Keri and her big prize!

    Dream in Full Color Contest Winner

    After reviewing all of the amazing entrees for our Dream in Full Color Contest, Keri’s board stood out and was chosen as the winner of $10,000 in Company C product! She also receives 4 hours of one-on-one time with co-founder Chris Chapin and 4 hours of design consultation with one of our in-home design experts. Together, we’ll make Keri’s design dreams come true! Follow Company C at facebook.com/colorfulliving as we document the entire project along the way! We asked Keri some questions to learn more about our winner and her dining room design challenge. Below is her story!



    How did you hear about Company C? I’ve known of the Company C brand for years, I think mainly from press I’ve seen in House Beautiful & Traditional Home. I had been eying the Lydia Rug and recently went to your Hingham, MA store to look at it in-person. That’s when I found out about the Dream in Full Color Contest!

    Why are you in need of a colorful room make-over?
    We just moved into our new home in October and truthfully our entire house is a work-in-progress. When we moved in, we gave most of the rooms a fresh coat of paint. I wasn’t really sure what to do with the dining room and so we went neutral thinking it could go with anything. The result is dull, boring and unfinished. Most of our budget went towards updating our kitchen and bathrooms. As a result, furnishing the dining room has been last on the list. The Dining room is the first room visitors see when they walk into our new home. I have been dreaming of what it would be like to have a pulled together room someday that makes a fabulous first impression!

    What’s the one item you MUST have from Company C?
    This is so hard! I love so many products but I guess it would have to be the Simone chair, because I anchored my Pinterest Dream in Full Color board around that chair! I do have to say whenever I look at my Pinterest board, the leopard rug in azalea jumps out at me, but I’m eager to see what the Company C designers envision for the room!

    What’s your favorite color(s)? Being an Art Director, I love lots of different colors, some of my favorites being greens, pinks, navy, and tangerine (at the moment!). I focused my Pinterest board on the color green. I have a soft spot for the color because our last home of 6 years had a ton of green and I just miss it! I think when we moved into this new home, I didn’t want to repeat the same color so I consciously stayed away from greens, but I would love to see it back in my home and the dining room seems like the perfect spot.

    How do you incorporate colorful living into your lifestyle? In most rooms, I am definitely about POPs of color: tangerine kitchen chairs, bright lamps and pillows, dressers that have been revived with fun colors using Annie Sloane paint. I have also been digging painted ceilings! We painted our guest bedroom white with a purple ceiling and I love the result! My personal style is toned down in the winter, but I often accessorize with a fun scarf or a bright bag and come summer, I dress in full-on color!

    What will be the theme of your first dinner party in your new dining room and who are you inviting? This is easy, the theme will be “Dress in Full Color!” to celebrate this amazing experience! I imagine I will invite our closest friends from Boston and the surrounding area. I cannot wait to tell all of my friends – it may have to turn into a cocktail party rather than a dinner party because I’ll want to invite everyone! (I think planning this party will be my next Pinterest board!)

    Can you describe your dream dining room in just a few words? A timeless and happy space to create family memories for years to come.

    What are you most excited about with this design adventure? This entire process is a dream come true! I am so excited to work with the designers and discuss home furnishings and of course I’m overjoyed to finally have a finessed room to be proud of. My style has always been “transitional” making use of family hand-me-downs, implementing DIY techniques while incorporating new purchases here and there. I have always dreamed of what it would be like to plan out and furnish an entire room from scratch instead of working around what we already have. I cannot wait to see the outcome of our new dining room!

    Is there anything else you would like to share? I cannot thank Company C enough for this amazing opportunity! I also want to go back and thank the lovely woman at the Hingham, MA store for prompting me to enter this contest (and for being so nice and helpful!) Thank you, Thank you Company C!!!
