If you’re like us, picking a wall colour is both highly stressful and intimidating. There is just too much to choose from. Sure, you have a colour in your head—you saw it somewhere once upon a time and can sort of remember it. But the moment you step up to that case, full of all of those pretty-coloured paint chips, your mind goes blank and you begin to second-guess yourself.
It doesn’t have to be like that.
Olympic Paint has really wowed us with their new downloadable ColorClix Visualizer, which helps turn that colour in your head into reality. The downloadable program helps you capture a colour, or even a palette, from an image of inspiration. Further, it will give you the selected colour names and codes to make shopping a breeze, and also provides five neighbouring and five harmony colours, making it a no-fail solution for hesitant diy-ers.
And for the most fickle of home decorators. you can go a step further and choose to see how the colour looks in one of four pre-fab room images available on the site. (Note: In the future, users will be able to upload images of their rooms to apply the paint colour to so they can really see what it will be like.)
Okay, so now who is going to develop a program that paints the walls for us, too?
