Midwest #38: Chris and Jay's Real Reflection

Janel Laban
Oct 16, 2008
Name: Chris and Jay Location: Chicago, IL Type of Home: Condo What inspired you to use color? Our space is pretty small (under 900 sq feet). We used color to make the space feel brighter, larger and more inviting. We are first time homeowners and wanted our place to be a real reflection of us - white walls just wouldn't do!

Color Tip: Get your hands on a swatch book - it makes color selection so much easier. Really examine the color you are selecting and examine any undertones - colors may look the same in a small swatch but these tiny differences are magnified on a large wall.

Colors Used: Benjamin Moore Nimbus Gray, Blazing Orange, Black Pepper, Coastal Fog and Yarmouth Blue.

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
