The Final Four-By Color

March Madness is here. If you are like me, while you don't follow college basketball, you enjoy filling out a bracket. But what if you don't have the first clue who to pick, what method do you use? I know more than one of you have used the old "picking schools by their color", whatever works right?So in honor of the Final Four, let's take a look at the colors the final teams bring us (through decorating of course!)

Starting with Villanova and UConn, very similiar in color- Navy and White (with a little bit of red for UConn)

Next up is UNC.....

Light Blue and White- or Carolina Blue if you will....

Last but not least, Michigan State.....Green and White- some creative freedom had to be taken but it looks like The Green Room for Harry and Bess Truman in the White House has it right...
If you were picking by color, who would you have to win the tournament?

UGH! I had Wake to win it all against OK. UNC is the only one who pulled through for me & made it to Final Four! Im not complaining though, at least Duke is gone! So many teams share colors, so Im going w/ Wake Forest based on colors w/ extra points for originality, mustard & black are pretty sweet (tough to decorate w/ though) Better luck next yr Deacs.

Marianne! You are so funny. I didn't even know it was the final four time!! George would be SO proud.
I like the Carolina blue and white room, my personal fave. And the striped room...I've always loved that one.

I totally didn't think I would be able to partcipate in this post. I am not a sports fan so this march madness is lost on me. Thanks for helping me out with decorating terms. My favorite rooms are all the green and white ones so I guess I'll be rooting for Michigan!

What a fun idea for a post! I love those blue rooms but green is my all time favorite. And that last dining room is beautiful--love the mirrors.
