Chip It

Chip It....the new color selection tool by Sherwin Williams.  
Download it to your computer, then use the software to receive custom color recommendations.
What a brilliant idea, right?

We're trying to decide on a color for our dining room at the moment, so why not give it a try. 
My jumping off point: window covering fabric.
Scan it up, baby.

We're hoping to highlight the coral/orange color, so here's what we came away with...

Interesting. Three different colors all pulled from the same fabric. Of course, I did scan three different images of the same fabric. So clearly, this is subjective to your image. 

Unfortunately, none of these are going to be the right color for us. Back to the drawing board. I guess there's no easy way out for sampling colors...we'll just have to rely on old faithful. Sample pots. And blotchy walls. 

So, tell me. Have you used the Chip It tool with much success?

until next time,
