What inspired you to use color? I traveled with a ballet company for a while, and saw some truly amazing color around the world. Places that stand out for me include Turkey, Japan, Italy, and Mexico. But I also grew up with color. My parents enjoy color, and used it well in our home...
Color Tip: Invest in the paint deck(s) from a quality line of paint such as Benjamin Moore - it's worth the money. I also like to make swatches of colors I am considering on big pieces of foam core.
Colors Used: Benjamin Moore: Timothy Straw (2149-40), Water Drops (659), Arctic Blue (2050-60), White Swan (927), Delightful Golden (2158-30), Greenbrook (517)
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.
