While paint is a very cost effective way to update or decorate a home, the cost of choosing the wrong color and having to repaint can certainly add up.  Seeking the professional advice of a Home Stager® or Decorator are ways to avoid this, but it is still hard for most people to envision the finished product – UNTIL NOW.

In a past article, I sang the praises of the Benjamin Moore Pottery Barn Paints as a great way to pick current colors.  Now it’s time to give kudos to Sherwin Williams for their innovative website tools.

My favorite is the Color Visualizer .  This tool allows you to upload your own photos and try out different paints and trim colors.  I have used this successfully for my Home Staging clients and it is truly amazing.  You can use it for both the exterior and interior of your home.  I truly urge you to try it our as words can not describe what a fun and useful tool this is!

Newly added to the Sherwin Williams website is the ColorSnap for iPhone and Blackberry.  Use your phone to snap a picture of a color that inspires you.  Not only will Sherwin Williams help you match that exact color, this app will help you fine tune it using lightness, saturation, and hue features.

Have fun with these innovative tools and please share your experiences with these products in the comments section below.  And don’t hesitate to ask us Staging questions – we love to share ideas!
