If you didn't see my post before about My Colortopia, I'm back to talk about it again. I've been using it for some projects and wanted to share my results! My Colortopia is a new community by Glidden that helps you select colors with confidence. If you are overwhelmed by interior design decisions, head there immediately to get guidance, advice and inspiration. My Colortopia helps you select your paint colors and tools as well as get your painting questions answered.The fancy color tool called “My Image Inspiration” is what helps you select the paint colors. This is especially great if you have a paint color in mind, but you have no idea what to pair with it.
The reason I've been using this tool is that you can use your OWN image to select your paint colors.
I uploaded an image of a chair project I did – I particularly like the blue that was in this project, and I want some ideas of color combinations for other projects.
You'll click on one of the colors in the middle, and it will give you a palette on the right. I'm liking the three blue-ish grays down at the bottom of the color palettes that were given to me. I absolutely love this tool! It gives me ideas and color suggestions when I have absolutely no idea what goes together. And as a crafter, I sometimes draw a blank . . . or I have paint colors that I have no idea what to do with. You could even take a picture of a paint chip and put it into My Image Inspiration – and get some great suggestions for what to pair it with!
I hope this helps you the next time you get stuck, have a project you want to spruce up or are looking for home decor inspiration.
