I agree with K T G. It seems that houses with similar color schemes or similar thought processes, like black and white with pops of bright color or muted earth tones, were grouped together in the first round. In general, weak ones were paired with weak ones and then two strong ones were paired together. These two were an example, as were Christine's Colorful Cottage and the Modern Danish Clown Colors. I think strong and weak should have been paired together. It would make voting in the subsequent rounds more interesting.

I like the use of graphics and textiles, but the colors don't do much for me.

Yes, mviamontes, neutral can make a statement, but this one falls short. The only accents are a red/orange couch and yellow tulips.

You call it Inger's Bright Bold Colors. All I am getting is black, white and gray with some colored knick knacks and chairs to stand out.

The colors make me confused. I like the use of black and white with saturated colors. But I am not sure I like the color combos. Springy greens and blues in one room, dark gray in the next, with a cheery yellow and then a purplish color that looks dead on the walls. It seems like a great concept that was not quite executed right.

I like the portraits on the wall and the bedroom with the large owl painting. Not sure how the baby blue and pink bathroom ties in with the color scheme of bright kitchen and bedroom.

I agree that the colors are bright and cheerful, but they don't seem to come from the same color palette. It makes the color scheme somewhat discordant.

I am not sure what Danish Modern Clown Colors are, but I like your color palette. You used warm greens and oranges to tie into your wood cabinetry.

Well done, but again, not my favorite.

I like the modern art theme, but the color scheme isn't there. You have primary colors (red and blue) on one side then a the 70's disco wall on the other. I like the art accents, but there is no coherence in the color selection.

I understand it's a rented home, but kitchen needs to be lightened up. If you can't paint the cabinets, perhaps you could have used a lighter,warmer shade of yellow. That shade look somewhat dead in the photo (but that may be the lighting).

While I think the colors are relaxing, I would have like to see color on your furniture. Not my favorite, but very nice.

I like the using of the moulding to break the wall and ceiling. However, I would have liked to see different paint colors in the different rooms.

I agree with ashbadger. While I love the wall of children's art, it's not my favorite house. A lot of art on the walls, but it doesn't all tie together. It looks a bit chaotic.

We only see one room. What is the color scheme of the whole house?

Again, too much white. You have many architectural features and book cases that could have been used to bring in more color. The colors don't have to jump off the walls, but could tie into the other colors more.

There is only one shot of the pink wall, so it's hard to see how that ties into the color scheme of blues and greens from the gardens.

I like the artwork, but there is no color on the walls. It's too much white, with only accent pieces in color. Even the lamp shade is white, you could have used color to make that jump out from the wall.

I like the color selections (orange and green), but overall it seems unfinished. The major use of color is two walls painted with some throw pillows and lamp shades. Perhaps more color on the wall is needed or better placement of accent pieces. Not sure.

I like how the pink accents in the kitchen (fridge, bread box, mixer, foot stool) tie the kitchen into the living room. While at first look the colors are quite bright, they seem to tie the rooms together. There was definite thought and consideration behind the color palette.

I agree with elliebets's comment, perhaps what Christine wanted to convey was vibrance and life, not sophistication. And like Modfan, I hope that the judges are as bold as Christine was with her color choices.
