Use this app to match real-world colors with paint colors #Nitty Gritty#apps#great-ideas#house paint February 8 | Megan Finley meggyfin With the ColorSnap app from Sherwin-Williams, you can use your smartphone (iPhone, Android, and Blackberry) to match real-world colors with paint colors. Just snap a photo and see the matching paint color — as well as two coordinating ones! So you can easily paint the walls to match that awesome accent color in your rug. Or that pretty shell you found on the beach that reminds you of your honeymoon? Yup, you can paint your bedroom in that exact soothing tone. No more standing in front of the paint department trying to match swatches and getting overwhelmed. Where the HELL was this thing when I was re-decorating!? Join our community!

Show/Hide comments [ 13 ] OoHH! I like!!! Have you tried the "Chip It" feature from SW, Megan? It's awesome, too! Reply No, what's "Chip it?" Reply This app looks awesome! I'm about to redecorate my new place too. ^_~ Reply Behr has a similar app called ColorSmart. 🙂 Reply Good, I'm glad that more brands are doing this! It's genius. Reply FYI: my boobs are "youthful coral" which goes nicely with "nonchalant white" and "steely gray." 10 agree Reply I can just imagine the way this played out in your head. "Oooh, cool app!" *download* "You know what I should do with this? Take a picture of my boobs and tell the internet what paint colour they are, and what they go with!" Also, you could paint your bedroom (or other room…) to coordinate with your boobs! (No potential for awkwardness when a parent (or possibly worse, in-law) asks how you chose the colours for the room…) 2 agree Reply Yeah, I want to paint my bedroom "Caroline's boobs." 3 agree Reply The answer to parents is "I chose a color that would be flattering to my skin tone." Yes, I may have followed Caroline's example. No, I'm not telling. Yes, I'd put money on "color match your boobs" to become a Facebook meme. 2 agree Reply Ooh, how diplomatic! I like it. Reply I had plans to use it on pictures of my boobs before I downloaded it (it was the only reason I downloaded it,) but I didn't have plans to tell the internet until the hilarious names of "youthful coral" and "nonchalant white" revealed themselves to me! Reply Anjou Pear Reply This is truly amazing. My two-year old got hold of a pen and wrote all over the walls, and I've been wondering how we'd ever figure out what color to use to cover it up!
