It’s not the first time we’re mentioning Pinterest in our blog post, and it’s because we really love using this app and put a lot of effort to post inspiring home interior ideas, tips and latest trends.

Pinterest is excellent for creating mood boards and keeping your inspirational snaps, DIY tips and pictures of items you want to buy. You can create boards for each category, including home accessories, organising tips, fashion outfits etc.

Capturing & Matching Colours

  • Adobe Color CC

Always wanted to style like professional? Even if you aren’t good at matching colours, it shouldn’t stop you from having dynamic and refreshing colour combinations in your house.

We already mentioned about advantages of Adobe Color in our Ultraviolet blog post. Adobe Color allows you to scan selected colour inspiration, save your favourite colour themes, create your own and discover colour palettes designed by professionals.

Adobe Color is excellent for any project involving colour combining, even if you’re putting together a fashion outfit.

We often talk about window dressing layering. Using Adobe Color will help you to choose the best colour combination and create achingly cool and dynamic window looks.

It’s a colour capturing app created by paint producer Benjamin Moore. The app allows you to take a snap of any colour inspiration and match it to more than 3,300 Benjamin Moore’s paint colours.

Color Capture is your Shazam for colours; you can save your favourite colour swatches, share it with your friends or interior design professionals for additional advice. 

The app doesn’t only have to be used for choosing a paint colour. Users get access to the colour codes, which can be used when selecting homewares, clothing etc. 

The app also lets you explore existing colour combinations, which is great when you’re stuck with choosing a perfect colour for your new blind or need some colour inspiration.
