What inspired you to use color? My color taste has pretty much been the same, ever since I was young. Oftentimes, I don't focus on individual color, but rather how they will work with my furniture and decor. I won't choose color for my rooms just because they are in fashion at the moment. I usually don't care what colors are in or out. All colors that you chose in each room, I can tell you the reason why I painted in that color. Everything contained within these four walls represents me...
Color Tip: There's no right and no wrong. People don't want to take risks. If you want your living space to be really bold and paint your wall in black, go ahead and do it. If you hate it, just repaint it. After all, it is your home!
Colors Used: Always love Ralph Lauren colors, Benjamin Moore and Behr.
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.
