A colorful competition for Dallas Designers.


The colors we choose to live with say a lot about who we are. We’d love to see rooms (or fascades, or vignettes, indoor or out) that embody a personality type, as defined below. Between April 1 and April 30, 2014, submit as many entries as you would like for a chance to be included in the July/August issue of D Home magazine.
