What inspired you to use color? I've always loved bold colors. For years I lived in white- and beige-walled apartments and disliked the blah-ness of it all. I often dreamed about the colors I would paint the walls when I had a home, so some of the rooms in my condo are as I had imagined I wanted them, but others it was just a matter of taking a risk and picking a bold color when I was standing in front of all those paint chips...

Color Tip: Don't be afraid to use bold colors on the walls because it can transform a room in ways you hadn't envisioned. And, in the world of home decor, paint is relatively cheap, so it's mainly an investment of time.
Colors Used: Bathroom: Behr, Scottish Isle

Fall Colors Introduction -------------------------------

Pin it button big

Welcome, everyone, to our Fourth Annual Fall Colors Sharing & Contest. We're looking for the most beautiful & colorful home in the world and sharing all of the great ideas we get with our readers. This year we're amping things up and hoping to do things better than ever. There are two basic phases, the Sharing Phase and the Voting Phase...

1. Sharing Phase - you comment, judges decide

The 40 best, completed entries will be posted on a daily basis for three weeks. You can view them all at anytime via our new, improved contest pages under ALL ENTRIES. During this time your comments are VERY IMPORTANT as our six judges will be choosing 16 finalists from each region based on comments and their own colorful opinion.

2. Voting Phase - you vote till you drop

Starting October 20th, finalist voting will begin on a daily basis through our new bracketed voting system, which will pit our 16 finalists against one another until only one remains. Sound exciting? We hope so.

Best, Maxwell
