It’s time again to enter to win “Love the House You’re In” custom collage by Mel Kolstad. Her latest creation — for last month’s winner, Stacey — is above. Isn’t it amazing…? Imagine what she could do with your house — it’s easy peasy to enter….

To enter this month’s contest, leave a Comment answering the question:

What color paint (or wallpaper design) is on your kitchen walls right now? Optional: Are you happy with it?  Please read all the rules here before entering, they all apply.

Just like last month — this contest rewards regular readers, because I’m only leaving it open for 48 hours. I’ll pick a winner on Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, here is what Mel had to say about her latest creation: 

Look at this little gem of a house!  When Stacey sent me the photos, I knew instantly how I was going to create the collage.  The house and the surroundings have a very “ecclesiastical” feel to them – that’s the only way I can describe it.   There is just something so peaceful about this place, which is why I used the calming greens and browns to highlight the house, along with the “overcast” sky.  The tiny stones were a wonderful challenge to recreate, too!   So there you have it.  I don’t want to play favorites but this house was REALLY REALLY fun to do!  😀

Thank you, Ms. Mel. You can experience more of Mel’s world at her blog: Ephemeraology

    My walls are “Cornhusk”, a nice light green with a yellow tinge. I quite like it! It goes well with all the honey coloured wood and fake butcher board counter a la 1983. Can’t wait to redo it in turquoise and pink!!!!! Then I’m gonna find me some really sweet old wallpaper, with geraniums!

    My walls are a silver gray – my backsplash is 70’s faux brick, which I painted a bright apple green. The kitchen cafe curtains, counter accents and wall art are predominantly lime and apple greens. Cabinets are a dark 70’s finish, which is now 21st century espresso with stainless chevron hardware (a lucky find). Countertops are original 70’s (and earlier) formica – a white with a delicate green veining. Floors are a medium/light oak laminate to contrast the other woods (espresso bistro table & cabinetry). Found some neat matching geometric sink mat & runner in browns, grays, and white which really bring the flooring back a few decades. Pure white porcelain dinnerware – white appliances – white porcelain sink with oversized stainless commercial hardware. I love it!
