Type of Home: rented apartment
What inspired you to use color? As with many rental units, we moved into a beige boring box without a drop of color to speak of. With an array of colorful artwork and accessories, I can instantly add personality to my space and make it a place to call home......and if I'm lucky a few cans of paint helps pull it all together...
Color Tip: Tear pictures from home design mags that you really like and put them in a file. Later revisit the pictures and you will find that they tend to have a common theme in color and style.
Colors Used: Living Room Benjamin Moore, Pale Smoke Dining Room: Benjamin Moore,Britannia Blue Nursery: Sherwin Williams, Tansy Green
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.
