Midwest #4 – Maggie’s Goodbye to White Walls
What inspired you to use color? After years of living in white walled apartments I’m enjoying playing with color. When I bought my house is was painted with intense, dark, depressing jeweltones so I cleaned it up with upbeat fun colors.
Color Tip: I can’t stand clutter, and when you use bold colors you can’t allow clutter. Your walls become a focal point, don’t mess it up too much!
Colors Used: Benjamin Moore Stem Green (kitchen) Labrador Blue (dining room and bath) Armstrong vinyl composite tile in the kitchen and bathroom in specialty colors (unavailable at big box stores, but can be ordered at a local flooring wholesaler)
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.
