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!
