Peggy over at Creative Influences posted about The Apartment Therapy "got color" contest. She shared some of her favorite entries. I thought I would do the same just for fun. This contest was the first contest I had ever entered, and I entered because it was a COLOR contest. I think my color scheme is unique and bright. (not for everybody, but for me) With that said, here is who I would pick from the CHICAGO entries.
#2 Heather's Aqua in Austin (link)
Love the little pops of red. You have to admire Heather for painting those tall walls too! She could of just left them white.
Love the way her photography looks on her walls. She uses this space for meeting with her clients.
#8 John's Bold, Bright, Day or Night (link)
Maybe black isn't "color" to everyone. I think its stunning. One of my favorite colors to paint on walls actually. John's place is homey without being cluttered.
He's a graphic designer who places his items well, not to mention puts great color combo's together!!!! He has many many votes, I am sure he is going to place.
#20 The Crew Tag Boys' Balanced Energy (link)
Well, for one, I LOVE THE FURNITURE! Look at the orange lamp!! I just love all the stuff together in this one room. It just works.
They painted the stripes themselves instead of going and buying wallpaper. Good for them!!!! Looks wonderful.
They have a PANTON chair. Not that they should win because of that,..but it helps. lol
#28 Jamie's Unorthodox Color Palette (link)
I think Jamie did a great job mixing colors and styles together. She has tons and tons of votes, so I would say she is a winner. I will say she used color, unlike some people who entered. ;)
Love the white walls opposite of the couch. Nice to see someone likes WHITE with color like I do.
Okay this is 4. That's all that will be picked in each region. I think there are many more that deserved more attention. I was sad for some that got such bad comments or none.
#7 Michael & Mindy's Sunny Chicago Loft (link)
#13 Aj's Box of Crayons (link)
#30 Moca's Color Evolution (link)
I haven't taken the time to look at the other regions to pick my favorites from them. I just wanted to look at who was going to beat me. ;) lol
