Midwest #44: Lauren's Many Moods

Pin it button big
Name: Lauren Location: Nashville, TN Type of Home: Ranch/Cottage What inspired you to use color? I have always loved color. I like to use color to create moods in my home. I use brighter, vivid colors in the living spaces to create energy and lighter, toned down colors in our bedroom for a more peaceful mood. I tend to use neutrals as the base for my rooms to create balance and depth.

Color Tip: Everything does not have to match.

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
