What inspired you to use color? We're graphic designers and love working with color; it makes us happy to come home to. This bold color scheme in our home was inspired by recent travels to the Caribbean and Central America, with a modern twist...
Color Tip: Using complementary colors always works, but color triads can be even more interesting. Playing with a color wheel and thinking about color theory is important. The color scheme in my home is a triad... with the open floorplan, everything needed to work together, yet each room is a different color. Color accents tie everything together.

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.
