Location: Rochester, NY
Type of Home: colonial (new build)
What inspired you to use color? New houses have always left me rather cold, so when we found ourselves in this one, I became inspired by our beautiful view of rolling hills and farm lands. Fall colors have always been a favorite and we had the house painted before moving in based on a slipcover that I had used on a chair. Some colors have changed over the last few years but the ones that we had since the beginning worked beautifully and we never had to live with "builders white".
Color Tip: It is hard to get inspired looking at a wall of paint chips. Look for things that you love or make you just feel good. Paint colors can always be matched to the inspiration, not the other way around.
Fall Colors Introduction -------------------------------
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.
