East #13: Sary's High-Contrast Color

Name: Sary
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Type of Home: row home
What inspired you to use color? Having lived in either college dorms or rentals my entire adult life, I was so excited when I bought my own place and had the freedom to do whatever I wanted without asking for permission. Although it was a major fixer upper and required a lot of work before any finishes could even be applied, I knew exactly what I wanted from the very start! I wanted the color scheme to be high contrast, dramatic and to incorporate two of my favorite colors: pink and green...

Color Tip: For a small apartment/house, use one general paint color thoughout. This will allow the spaces to flow seamlessly and make the house seem bigger than it actually is. Use accessories, rugs, artwork, and accent walls to add more color.
Colors Used: Sherwin Williams Lazy Gray and Eider White

Fall Colors Introduction -------------------------------

Pin it button big

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
