What inspired you to use color? Every apartment I've ever lived in has started off beige, and my decorating mission is always to eradicate the beige as quickly as possible. Being surrounded by bright, rich colors is such a wonderful feeling - how could I resist?..
Color Tip: Pick an unusual object or piece of furniture that you love and design around that! (In this case, mine was the set of orange chairs.) Don't be afraid to be bold instead of pastel, to mix and match colors you might think don't go together, and to try something, hate it, and start over. That's part of the fun.

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.
