Sept, 2004 Contest: What is your favorite color scheme and why?

Congratulations to our contest winner!
Christine Kukla of Naperville, IL

After lingering in 1980s styles for about twenty years too long, and surviving the dusty rose and mauve phase of my previious home, I am now redecorating a newer home that lingers in the 1990s, thanks to the previous owner.
Today, my favorite color scheme focuses on subtle earth tones, beiges, tans, soft, creamy yellows and silver-greens. Hopefully, this relaxing color pallete will stand the test of time better than my much earlier decorating attempts that even included harvest gold and orange !
