Type of Home: Coastal Lowcountry Home

What inspired you to use color? Moving from a mountain town to the coast of North Carolina offered a great chance to start fresh; new furniture, accessories and a great new color palette. Wanting to infuse some of the bright spirit of the coast, a neutral base was used throughout the house with unexpected pops of color in each room. By not having a single white wall in the house, the great details of the crown and moulding are truly highlighted. We love that now each room has its own character and each day we enjoy the sunny spirit within our home...

Color Tip: I love to balance great timeless neutrals with select paint colors from the upcoming year's color forecast…that way you always have fresh colors that are in line with all of the new home accessories.

Colors Used: Sherwin Williams

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
