What inspired you to use color? Honestly, I have a really hectic life. I share my 2100 square foot home with my husband, two kids (including my one year old son), older brother and three nephews. It's a vibrant and chaotic place to be and by infusing bright color into the house it keeps things light and fun. I also like showing the kids through my choices of color that there are no boundaries to their creativity. If you love it, do it and don't worry about what anyone will think of it...
Color Tip: Paint every room, even if you choose a neutral. It's the cheapest and easiest way to make a room feel decorated, even when it's still a work in progress. If the color you picked doesn't look the same when you get it home and on the walls as it did on the swatch in the store, all you need is $50 and you're on to a new color. Easy Peesy.
Colors Used: Blue - Olympic Premium in Turquoise Mist, Green - Valspar in Paradise Valley
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.
