International #13: Paulina & Marek's Shades of Gray

Name: Paulina & Marek Location: Pabianice, Poland Type of Home: non-rental apartment, owned.

What inspired you to use color? The inspiration for my own interior was mainly my work as a graphic designer. I like clear and simple solutions as a base for any idea. I am also a rule breaker. I chose dark colors for the walls in my small apartment to prove that they do not have to "shrink" the size of my place.They are classy but also provide a neutral background for colorful paintings and mix of modern and old furniture...

Color Tip: I used black and darker shades of gray as a background for bright color on furniture and art works. These colors are neutral as well as elegant and classy.

Colors Used: black, graphites,navy blue, and egyptian cotton (off white).

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
