What inspired you to use color? I have always felt that color is the fastest and cheapest way to "remodel" your place, for the price of a can of paint and some pillows you can re-rock your world. I am inspired by the colors of mid-century America: everything from MGM technicolor musicals of the 40's to Warhol's silkscreens of the 60's, with plenty of 50's and 70's mixed in...

Color Tip: There are no right or wrong colors, use your intuition, if it's true for you than it's true.

Colors Used: split pea, cinder, cuacao orange, pismo dunes, atrium white.

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
