"Have you seen House Beautiful’s fab new paint finder app? ($4.99) The Hearst press department sent this over yesterday and I have to say it’s a very inspired.
According to the press release you can search specific paint colors from brands including Benjamin Moore, Farrow & Ball, Glidden, Ralph Lauren Paint, Sherwin-Williams, and more. Or you can breeze through “Editors’ Picks” for a curated collection from HB editors. If you don’t see what you want there click on the Color Personality tool to find the hue that fits you best.
App users can save their favorites in “My Paint Box,” where up to four colors can be compared side-by-side. Paint colors can also be viewed in full screen – a digital version of a paint swatch so users can hold it up and see how it looks before committing to painting the entire wall.
Fantastic!! The only thing I wish is that you could take a snapshot of a fabric swatch or color and have the app match it – but perhaps that’s just up the road."
This tool is way cool. I might just have to buy an apple product now . . .
