What inspired you to use color? Mainly the nature. For me, the colors influence our daily life, our mood, energy etc... For that reason it's necessary to look for the proper mix , the right balance of colors for the present moment of our life. It's like a color therapy...
Color Tip: If you live in a small place, don't use contrasted colors between walls & sofas or big furniture, try to keep them in similar tones & then accentuate the room with colorful accessories.
Colors Used: white, grey, brown, black, orange & gold
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.
