What inspired you to use color? My New Year's resolution was to walk more boldly in this world. No one was cutting in front of me at the movies! That hum-drum job - well, it had to go! And my loved ones now know exactly how I feel about them! And oh yeah, that boring colonial in the suburbs got transformed into the perfect symbol of energy, creativity, animation. To be a colorful person is to let your individuality and positivity shine. My close friend and interior designer Phillip Hunsaker helped me translate those feelings into a space whose color inspires me to be colorful, to live life to the fullest...
Color Tip: Ignore the rule of no dark colors in a small space. It's a myth.

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.
