What inspired you to use color? The true inspiration to use color came from the colors of the things we love to collect! All the vibrant colors of nostalgic dishes, curtains, linens, & books truly is the inspiration to use color in our otherwise dull rental. Not being able to paint the walls and vertical blinds *gasp* is not exactly a dream backdrop so we tried to take the focus off those & bring color and whimsy to other areas!...
Color Tip: Draw colors from existing pieces you love!
Fall Colors Introduction -------------------------------
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.
