What inspired you to use color? Colors from the local farmers market where you can find all sorts of amazing fruits, veg and flowers. Also influences from Japan & China where i travel to often, and can find echoed in San Francisco architecture.
Color Tip: Be Bold ! Keep a simple two/three color theme on the walls, and in key pieces of furniture. Look in your own yard and community for inspiration. Look, and trust your eyes.
Colors Used: None provided.
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.
