What inspired you to use color? I've lived in rentals for so long that I've had it with white bedrooms. I love color, and this combination is really appealing to me. I also wanted a bedroom where I felt calm and this combination of blue and green helps me with that...
Color Tip: Don't be afraid to experiment on a small area, or poster board before you commit to painting the actual room. Since colors attract the eye to mistakes, be really careful with edges, especially if they are against a contrasting color.
Colors Used: We used Valspar paint from our local Lowe's in an eggshell glaze. The ceiling and trim are called Canyon Cloud. I can look up the others if anyone wants to know.
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.
