Our annual contest and sharing of wonderfully colorful rooms kicks off later this week — brought to you by Behr Paint. If you love color, are thinking about adding new hues to your home, can't get enough of great reader rooms or just like the thrill of a good design competition, this is the contest is for you. We hope you're thinking about entering — get the camera ready and do a good spruce up because things are getting underway soon and, this year, you want to get that entry in early! Stay tuned!
