What inspired you to use color? Color is what brings a living space to life, it's a form of expression and an element of connection in small spaces. I choose many of my colors because they were dynamic in their uses. The Red Wine color I used in my kitchen tower, I continued to use in one form or another in each room of the condo to form a connection between rooms and a sense of overall style. Small homes and condos can easily look disjointed if each room has an overly distinct style. Using colors to connect rooms to one another, gives the feeling of an overall organization and connectedness. Using Red Wine, shades of brown, gray, and green. I was able to make my 2 bed/2bath condo have unique styles in each room but also have each room feel like pieces of a whole.

Color Tip: For small spaces, pick a great color and use it in one form or another in each room. Whether it's a throw pillow or a painted accent wall, using a color connection brings unity to the space.

Colors Used: Red Wine, Feather Grey, others were color matches.

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.

Best, Maxwell
