What inspired you to use color? I'm inspired by my interest in reusing and refurbishing vintage items and the work of other designers — whether print, architecture, art, interiors, or fashion. I choose colors using instinct, rather than any grand scheme, believing the best combinations happen accidentally. I use color to keep my house feeling bright and fresh without being distracting, a balance between comfort and creativity...

Color Tip: Never be afraid to take chances with color, there is no right and wrong and no rules.

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
