I’ve Got Color! Final Smackdown Contestant #1: Jon’s 60’s Retro Bedroom
Location: Irvine, CA
Bonus: Jon’s Original Submission
Why I Should Be the Champ:
“This contest was called “I’ve got Color,” and i think out of all these (great) finalists, i’ve got the Most color going on (amount of different colors).
I wanted this room to be light, fun, personal, happy and entertaining. I got the “light” by using white, got the “fun” and “personal” from all the accessories, the “happy” from the actual hues, and achieved the “entertaining” by where i placed all the colors. Because the room is grounded in neutrals, your eyes bounce from color (or color block) to color and are never bored.
(now why i WANT to win? i desperately need a new rug and some chairs for other parts of my house and CB2 has GREAT stuff- plus if i do win- you can bet i’m throwin’ a party, so i’ll need a few more glasses too!)”
Whose Room I liked Besides My Own:
“I guess I’d have to say Turquoise’s– not for the “style”- ie, Hollywood Regency, (I didn’t think this contest was about “styles” or fancy design)- but because her colors were the complete opposite of mine- where i had white, she had grey, where i had brights, she had muted tones. Her room challenged my perception of ‘color.'”
