Name:Sylvia Location: Edmonton, Canada Type of Home: Apartment Style Condominium What inspired you to use color?

The third annual fall colors contest for starters. I am mutable and tend to move items from space to space and love playing with contrast and color. I like the way different colors can make me feel.

Color Tip: Brown goes with everything. It's the perfect color, AND the perfect neutral. I like to use with bold reds, blues, and greens, or calm it down with light blues and greys. In our climate there is no better way to create a warm retreat.

Colors Used: Behr: Warm Earth, Ocean Pearl, and Swan Wing.

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
