Techno Colour

Did you know I LOVE technology?

Let me rephrase that. I think technology is amazing……when it’s working. I have no idea how to fix things when they go terribly wrong but I do get blown away by all the wonderful things we have at our fingertips these days.

Like the iPhone. I LOVE my iPhone. I’ve had a PDA for years but the iPhone does so much more.

And now they are bringing out fantastic apps to use, like the new Dulux MyColour application. How handy will this be? If you are out and about and see something of which you really like the colour, take a snap with your phone and then let the MyColour app tell you which Dulux paint colour it is. You can download it from iTunes.

Resene have one too which works pretty much the same way. Resene ColourMatch lets you either take a photo and match the colours or choose from the colour spectrum to find the closest colour.

Now, I do not think these apps will solve all your colour dilemmas and you need to remember that it’s still a digital copy of the colour and may vary from the real paint on the wall, but it will come in handy when you see something you like and think it may be the start of a great colour scheme.

Don’t forget, a Colour Consultant will bring A5 or A4 colour swatches so you can see the colour in a larger piece than that on your phone. They will also be able to advise you if this colour will work with existing items in your home and they will advise you on how light will affect your chosen colour. So make sure you still consult an expert.
