Wow...we just wrapped our fifth fabulous color contest on Apartment Therapy with our largest ever final vote. Lots of you weighed in in a super-close competition between two colorful US rooms - one in Chicago and one in Los Angeles, as well helping to choose our top international entry. And now, as they say at that other competition...the envelope please....
Our Room for Color 2009 winner is:
Beth's Kind of Blue Living Room in Chicago
And the International Division winner is:
Heather's Coral Kitchen in Montreal
Congratulations to our two winners on having the Apartment Therapy readers top picks for the most beautiful, colorful rooms of 2009!
Big thanks to the entrants for sharing their rooms with us this past month (you can check them all out in our contest page archive) and to all of those who voted and helped to support your favorites, thanks to you too!
We sincerely hope that seeing all of these colorful rooms, both bright and subtle, have inspired you to get creative in your own home. If it has, go for it and don't forget to take photos - the contest will be back again in 2010!
