Name: Amie Location: Chicago, IL Type of Home: 650 sq ft rental apartment What inspired you to use color? When I was younger, I wasn't allowed to decorate my bedroom. The white walls and cherry wood furniture just never reflected my personality. When I moved out on my own, it was extremely important to me to be able to personalize my space. Still, I moved three times before I finally put some color in my home!

Inspiration continued: After the end of a rocky live-in relationship, I just needed to claim a space as mine and mine alone. My walls are now gorgeous saturated colors that make me feel like I'm wrapped in a big warm blanket, and the space truly feels like home!

Color Tip: Don't be afraid to just choose a color! There are literally millions of shades, tints, and tones..waiting for the 'perfect' shade may mean never getting color in your home! Go with your gut and choose what you love...I picked the color scheme for my entire apartment from a pillow I found on sale! I was just drawn to it because of the great blues. I didn't even know I liked blue!

Colors Used: Ralph Lauren Silver Cuff Links, Loft, and Shale

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
