Location: Austin, TX
Type of Home: Mid-Century Ranch

What inspired you to use color? After renting for many years, we were so excited to paint nearly every wall in our first home. We pulled inspiration from various places -- a swatch of fabric, an architectural detail in our home, a piece of furniture. Then, we tried to make all the colors work together by choosing a light palette. The color combination reminds Sarah of a roll of Sweet Tarts.

Color Tip: Color inspiration is everywhere! If something strikes you, go for it. You can always paint over it.

Colors Used: Valspar Heart of Palm (DR), Silver Leaf (BR), Gleeful (LR)

Fall Colors Introduction -------------------------------

fallcolors1.jpgWelcome, 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 till 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
