Ever since my oldest got his room made over, my youngest has been dying to have his room done as well. When we moved in we kind of just threw everything in their rooms, cleaned up a bit and left them at that. We’ve been working room by room, and it’s finally his turn. It’s hard being the little brother sometimes.
One of the biggest decisions of the room was the paint color. My boys are not ones to shy away from their opinions, so I knew he’d definitely have a say in the paint we chose. We decided to try out the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap® app. I thought he’d love using the app on my iPhone, and I was definitely right.
Easy to use, the free ColorSnap® app quickly and easily matches images you capture with your smartphone to the palette of 1,500 Sherwin-Williams paint colors. You just snap an image (or choose one already on your phone) and get up to eight matching Sherwin-Williams colors from the photo, or match a specific color and get coordinating color recommendations.
You can choose which parts of the photo the colors are chosen from which was really important to me because I knew we wanted color and not a neutral. We pulled up a photo we had taken on a little date of ours to a model home. He fell in love with the loft/play area, so I thought it would be fun to use it as color inspiration for his own room makeover.
When he started picking colors I was actually really impressed with his choices and saw a scheme coming together already, but we went ahead and played a bit with another photo he took himself just to be sure. We were able to save colors to our Saved Colors library to compare palettes or share via Facebook and email.
As soon as I saw the color Naval SW 6244 I knew that was it. He talked about wanting his room painted black, but once he started playing with the ColorSnap® app he thought maybe blue would be a better color. Naval looks like that perfect compromise of a gorgeous deep dark navy, and I can’t wait to get it on his walls! I think we’ll use colors from both of these palettes for the rest of his room.
Here’s what his room looks like now:
I’m excited to show you the full reveal, but until then how about a giveaway?!
