Midwest #11: Jesse's Tuned In Space

Pin it button
Name: Jesse Location: Dallas, TX Type of Home: Rented Duplex What inspired you to use color? Color has always been a big part of my life. Since I was younger my mother handed me a paint brush and left caution to the wind. I am constantly inspired by fashion, music, art, literature and anything that creates a story either mentally or visually.

Inspiration continued: People should think of a song that makes them feel the way they'd like to feel in a space and then mentally create a color for that song/mood. We all hear in color and if we tune in to realize what that sound is invoking within us we can create a space that not only makes us feel amazing it looks sensational too.

Color Tip: All color co-exists side by side naturally throughout nature. That being said Color should never be a stress, it should come naturally. If you feel stuck the best thing to do is to stop thinking of picking a color in context. Stop thinking of the certain room its for and pick what your drawn to and then find a room or place to apply it to. So,I'm saying work backwards...put together a scheme you love and find a room to put it in. Things will naturally fall together because you will be innately attracted to purchase things that will compliment your color scheme because you have chosen colors that work for you not for a certain room. If in doubt paint a wall and if you hate it try again...the best way to really become great at color is to experiment!

Colors Used: Crosby, Basil, Alfalfa, Bone Black, Cymric Silver, Regal Metallic Gold, Coastal Beige.

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 til 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
