Ta Da! Challenge # 14 Results

Create a Color Scheme

HomeWorkshop Color Scheme ChallengeWhat fun it was to see the color schemes you created from the blank canvas of our sitting area. All wonderful. Well almost all, but I’ll get to that.

Without further delay (drum roll please) the winner of the Challenge is Renee from Beaverton, Oregon!

Our Interior Design expert Leona Gaita and I were wowed by Renee’s colorful and imaginative entry.

Leona liked “…the intensity of color, which she then cleverly calms down with a neutral treatment on the floor.”

I loved that Renee got creative with her wall pattern and transforming the lamp. Then she popped in some ‘real’ pillows and a rug and told us where to buy them!

Here’s Renee’s sitting area and her comments:

Renee's Winning Entry

“Though I’ve never participated in a challenge before, I thought I’d give this one a go. So I loaded the drawing in photoshop and played and designed until I was happy. The Brown pillow is from Home Decoraters and is called Triad, as well as the area rug which is called Persimmon. The blue pillow is from Z Gallerie and called Fresco. The colors were altered to better fit the design. I switched the lamp into a hanging drum shade, which I picture in a dark linen picking up on the natural texture from the rug. The lamp shade would then be embellished with stripes in grosgrain ribbon and an embroidery detail. I would like the floors to be a medium dark stained planked hardwood. The chair is framed out in a lighter wood. Thanks for looking.”

Now for the other marvelous entries from Terri and her daughter Alana of Niles, Illinois. Both of their sitting rooms are so well-thought out. Terri’s room is calming, yet punched up with a gorgeous wall pattern and the glitz of her lamp.

And Alana! Well first we were thrilled to see this young lady’s work. We were so impressed with this future-designer’s color inspiration and her awesome wall stencils and lampshade pattern. You can read Terri and Alana’s descriptions here.
