Here's the third of our 4 southwestern finalists, from Chinatown, in Los Angeles, California. Please toss in your two cents, as our panel of judges will use your comments to help finalize their own decision (it's a tough job!). Dan and Amy's Original Entry Ashley's East Coast Meets Far East. The bold color on the walls sets off the lovely natural wood colors in the furniture. The alcove, in that deep red looks so cozy and just perfectly recedes from the main living space. As an Angeleno, I have such a fondness for those apartments with the bright tile kitchens, and solid decorative wood trim around all of the openings. It's great to see one that is so full of life with such careful use of color.
