Midwest #20: Signe's Cozy Colors

Name: Signe Location: Dayton, OH Type of Home: Townhome What inspired you to use color? Nature is what inspired me to use color. When we go hiking in the woods during the fall and seeing all the reds, oranges and browns, it is such a warm inviting color scheme that makes you want to cozy up with a fire.

Inspiration continued:I tried to incorporate that feeling into my home and use the natural colors found around us to guide our choices. After a trip to Seattle, we enjoyed the gray skies and cool breeze of the Sound and wanted to capture it in our home as well. I wanted the colors to transport you smoothly from inside to outside.

Color Tip: Find a color that you love and don't be afraid to use it. Look outside for inspiration and to help let you know what colors naturally go together. Most importantly, have fun with it and enjoy your space.

Colors Used: Valspar Coffee Bean, Valspar Olive Tree, and Valspar Ocean Storm

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 til 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
