Name: Maya & Michael Location: Cincinnati, OH Type of Home: Rented Loft Apartment What inspired you to use color? We have huge, south-facing windows that let in tons of light, which makes saturated colors look great! In fact, we used color to mute our bedroom and make it more cozy and tranquil.

Color Tip: Our apartment has a [mostly] open plan, so we've become really aware of peripheral color relationships. The colors in a home don't need to match, but they should all work together because they're all part of the same spatial experience.

Colors Used: Littleton and Wolf's Run from True Value

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
