East #16: Carol’s Custom Color
Location: Astoria, NY
Type of Home: rental apt.
What inspired you to use color? Design blogs like Apartment Therapy, SFgirlbybay, Design*Sponge; and magazines like Domino and Blueprint (now sadly no longer around!). Living in New York, I see some amazing apartments and get ideas from friends’ places, boutiques, and many other places…
Color Tip: Use it!
Colors Used: The blue in my living room is Old Pickup Blue. The color on my bedroom walls is a unique blend that’ll never be replicated — I started out too pink and took it back to the hardware store three times to remix, and ended up with this gorgeous taupe-ish color that changes with the light.
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.
