We have selected the four finalists for our "Make Room for Color" contest — and now we need your help!

As part of TODAY's "Make Room for Color" contest, sponsor Sherwin-Williams and designer Jackie Jordan will make over a viewer's room.


Jordan will base her colors and designs on something that inspires the home owner, like a garden, a favorite pillow or the sunrise. See the four finalists' rooms that need a makeover and their inspirational photos below, then vote for which room you think deserves the final prize!

Several years ago my darling husband painted our bedroom while I was away. He wanted to surprise me, and boy did he ever! He picked a khaki green color to match one of the colors in our quilt. The problem is that the room now feels like a military barracks instead of a peaceful, tranquil, romantic escape! I would love a bedroom that reminds me of the beautiful Grand Haven, Michigan sunset!

My husband George and I first moved into our new house in 2008. I had just finished chemo. The house and property were a blank canvas, as spare and sparse as my bald head. I threw myself into creating my gardens for therapy and relaxation. They became a beautiful tapestry of color, form and texture, but the house interiors remain a boring white. I would love to transform our master bedroom that needs to reflect the beauty and serenity of the gardens.

I purchased my first home in January 2015. I never thought I would have this American dream because I grew up living in what most people consider a housing project. Now that I have this house, I would love to get this makeover to make it feel more like home. I love being at the beach and going on vacation in the Caribbean. It is where I'm the most relaxed and at peace. I'm seeking to have that same feeling at home.

This room has an identity crisis. It is an office, a craft room, a storage unit and a dumping ground for old furniture and kids' mementos. I would love to have this room redone with a purpose. My inspirational photo is of a beautiful sunset in Rosarito, Mexico. This is my "happy place" that instantly relaxes me!
