Name: Sally Location: Grand Rapids, MI Type of Home: Studio Loft What inspired you to use color? I LOVE color, but have been in a dilemma about how to add color to my walls. I didn't want to paint the whole long and narrow wall that practically makes up our whole apartment just one color, so I decided to paint it six colors! This was a great solution, just one color would have been too over bearing, and the stripes really brighten our (sometimes dark) space. Most of all, these colors make me happy every day.

Color Tip: Just like with clothes, horizontal stripes make your space appear larger!

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
