Creating a space to celebrate

The Olivers are a family of four looking to liven up their living space.

Creating a space to celebrate

Kelsey and Vincent have two children, 8-year-old Mason and 4-year-old Nora. They loved the open area that made up their living room and front entryway, but the space was in desperate need of a makeover.

“We really wanted to change the color scheme in the room with some brighter colors,” said Kelsey.

With the holidays quickly approaching, the couple was in a hurry to create a space they could use to host family and friends.

Thankfully, the SheKnows HomeStretch team was able to help the family create a space they can be proud of, just in time for the holiday season. With the addition of more color, new curtains and a rug, the Olivers’ old space is new again.

“The room is beautiful and much brighter,” said Kelsey. “It’s a great place to entertain, and with the rug, we have a warm place by the fire to open presents in the morning."

Now that their new space is complete, they’re ready to put it on display.

“We plan to have the entire family over on Christmas morning to make breakfast and open presents. We are very excited to invite our friends over and show off our new room!” she added.
