Location: Gainesville, TX
Type of Home: Downtown warehouse loft
What inspired you to use color? I'm an artist (painter) and handbag designer, so throughout my life, color has been the focus. Even rooms with white walls are plastered with colorful art and accessories with bright floors.
Color Tip:I love layering multiple shades of the same color. Group all your yellow books on one shelf and all your reds on another.
Colors Used: Glidden "Cold Cash" in the front room, Kilz "Pickling Spice" in the limey green room. Valspar "Toasted Cinnamon" on the floors.
Fall Colors Introduction -------------------------------
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 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.
