Location: Asbury Park, NJ
Type of Home: owned condo
What inspired you to use color? This place needed to be a total opposite of the rich, warm and deep palate of our house in Northern NJ, and we wanted to capture a beachy spirit without the cliches. Almost everything is hand-me-down. No money to refinish the kitchen, but $150 worth of paint went a long way (even covering mauve laminate countertops!)...
Color Tip: Always go one color deeper than you THINK you want on a color chip... bold is better!
Colors Used: Living Room- Ralph Lauren "Shoreline Blue"; Dining- Ralph Lauren "Emperor"; dark living room wall- Behr "Trail Print"; Bedroom- Martha Stewart for Valspar "Shantung Gown"; kitchen is all Ralph Lauren.
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.
