color inspiration

So, I have no shame in admitting I am in love with my iphone. I am constantly being wowed by the cool new apps I find. My latest find is "Ben" by Benjamin Moore Paints. With this fun app you can take a picture of anything, select a color from your photo and tap the match key. It gives you a color strip with their closest paint color highlighted. Shake your phone and it gives you suggested coordinating colors based on your color choice. You can keep track of all the colors you choose and even write little notes. And the app is free! Who doesn't love free stuff.

I think this is such a great idea. As a creative person I can't tell you how many times I've seen the color of something, or a color combination and been so inspired by it. Even if you aren't looking to repaint your place. Its like your own little color inspiration journal, all on your iphone. I love technology.


  1. I don't have an iPhone, but this app alone makes me want to get one. My husband and I have suuucchh a hard time with paint colors!

  2. I don't have an iphone either, I made the mistake of getting something cheaper when I had to renew my contract and I'm now seriously regretting it. That's a great application though, colours are so exciting!
