Midwest #27: Matt & Rob's Happy Compromise

Pin it button
Name: Matt & Rob Location: Chicago, IL Type of Home: Condo What inspired you to use color? The two of us have very different taste and style when it comes to our home. The challenge was to take a more modern aesthetic and find a way to warm it up so that we both felt it reflected our personalities. Color was a really important part of that. Color Tip: Sometimes it’s really hard to be patient when you decide that you want to make a change to a room. The trick is to find the right balance between just going with your gut instinct and taking your time to find just the right shade or color.

Colors Used: Pear Green, Cream Fleece, & Tuscon Red (Benjamin Moore)

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
