App Crush

October 21, 2019

I am all about finding the best app for my design needs and I have to share this one with you! It’s called Color Snap by Sherwin Williams. It is a paint app that helps you find colors and color schemes for your projects just by a snap of a picture. There are lots of fun things this app can do but the “match a photo” is my favorite.






Okay, here is how it works… Download the app and once you do, you can scroll down and click “Match a Photo” and once you click on it your camera will open and you can start finding colors! How magical is that? 

Another cool feature is that you can use a previous photo. This is a great feature because sometimes I get inspired by a view or colorful building while traveling and I can later go back to find the color scheme of that photo!

I took this picture while visiting family in Kentucky. Say I wanted to use this winter sunset as an inspiration for a design of a living room. I upload it to Color Snap, and it automatically pulls 7+ colors by Sherwin Williams from the photo. 




















Now I may not being painting my walls “Tricorn Black” but I can then go to a Sherwin Williams to pick up the swatches and use these for other aspects of the design. Say I want to add throw pillows or art work with these colors? Now I have some guidance! 


***PLEASE NOTE: I use this merely for the color scheme and I do not recommend trusting the app without testing the colors first! There are so many factors in choosing a color. If you would like help choosing the perfect color please contact me and I would be happy to do a color consultation with you.
