What inspired you to use color? As we are both architects, it was very tempting to paint all the walls white and work within that template. But given this was our first home, we were very excited to experiment with different colors throughout the house. We tried to select colors based on the mood in the room and the natural light that existed.
Color Tip: Paint is not permanent so don't be afraid to go bold! BUT remember less is always more especially when dealing with color.
Colors Used: Ralph Lauren Prince Olympic Lime Burst Olympic Delicate White Olympic China White
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.
