What inspired you to use color? I'm pretty intuitive about how I use color. I want my home to reflect me, and color plays a huge part in achieving that. The fact that I rent and can't alter the walls has put more importance how I use my furniture and art to create the right looks.

Inspiration continued: My home is also in a perpetual state of flux- I'm constantly moving things around, editing, reappropriating, and recombining elements and colors to change the look of a room. It's a great exercise in creativity, and cheaper than buying new things!

Color Tip: Only use colors you absolutely love. It's a pretty simple tip- but tends to produce more interesting palettes than simply following trends.

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
