What inspired you to use color? The wonderful light variations (our only indication of seasons this far south) in this beach side town, plus the bleached colors of shells and driftwood, inspired a serene and neutral background for my diverse and colorful collection of paintings, sculptures, textile pieces, drawings and prints...

Color Tip: Always test your paint colors, and watch the test swatch change with the light. Make a decision only after you see it in artificial light and natural light.

Colors Used: Ralph Lauren picket fence white and beachwalk. Glidden's pine white plus Liquitex cerulean blue hue. Don't be afraid to mix your own colors, and write down the formula as you create it.

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
