Name: Angela and Adam Location: Chicago, IL Type of Home: Rental Apartment What inspired you to use color? Rentals can be pretty dreary- I add tons of color to make the space feel like a permanent residence. Every time I move to a new apartment, I change the entire mood by using new paint colors and keeping the same furniture.

Color Tip: Don't just look to interiors for color inspiration- the bedroom is the colors of a sketchbook I have, and the dining room is based on a handful of chair swatches.

Colors Used: Benjamin Moore symphony blue, passion fruit, and northern territory. All other colors were custom.

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
