East #58: Drew's Contrasts & Complements

Location: Durham, NC
Type of Home: Bungalow

What inspired you to use color? We wanted to use colors that would contrast with and compliment all of the wide trim in our 1940 bungalow. We were drawn to earthy colors that make the house feel warm and comfortable, and that we thought fit perfectly in a bungalow. We feel like we've picked colors that we have a personal connection with. For example, we found the table runner that appears in one photo while on vacation in Peru. It matched our house perfectly, and every time we see it we remember what a fantastic time we had on that trip...

Color Tip: Don't be afraid to use dark colors.

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
