Name: Amy D.P. Location: Bloomfield Hills, MI Type of Home: Studio What inspired you to use color? To individualize our living quarters, we make cosmetic decisions- we update the hardware, face lift the flooring, cabinetry and the color of our walls. We manipulate the interior of the home, our most immediate personal paradise.

Inspiration continued:The color of our walls mask a history, the assigned paint name declares a blank slate while reflecting our collective desires. Color associations in the landscape are a resource to ground one's present location; I am afraid that we move through space at such a rate that we cannot digest the actual color we see.

Color Tip: Use it up, buttercup!

Colors Used: domestic bliss, cottonwood, bird's nest, asparagus

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
