East #22: Becky's Careful Color

Name: Becky Location: UWS, New York City Type of Home: prewar apt What inspired you to use color? We liked the idea of imbuing a fairly traditional prewar apartment with a funkier sensibility, and thought that was best achieved through the careful use of color. We especially love the warm feeling of deep rich colors in rooms that are used for entertaining, like the dining room and kitchen... Color Tip: Think carefully about how different colors relate to one another throughout your home or apartment. We chose a few colors that echo throughout the apartment, and tried to be thoughtful about how they would look in combination for a more cohesive and harmonious feeling. Colors Used: Ann Sacks "jack o lantern' tiles in the kitchen over the banquette. Worth the investment!!

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.

Best, Maxwell
