What inspired you to use color? It started with a 1999 issue of Architectural Digest...The pinky-orange on the walls of a coastal Mexican home got into my head, and I dragged that magazine along with me through 4 apartments in two states before I finally got an approximation of that color up on the wall. In the meantime, we had some kids, and I wanted to extend color throughout the place to create a special environment to live and play in. The colors make us happy!...
Color Tip: If the color resonates with you, and you find yourself drawn to it over and over, it will probably be a color you will love living with, whether in small doses (a cookie tin) or on the walls.
Colors Used: All colors Benjamin Moore Eco-Spec. LR: 1304 All-a-Blaze, Boy's BR: 820 Misty Blue, Girl's BR: 2021-40 Yellow Highlighter, MBR: 2115-50 Iced Mauve
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.
