    Are you trying to figure out the perfect color combination? Not sure where to even start on the Color Finder when picking out the color combination for your next interior design project? Wondering how to take the colors of your favorite hotel or packaging and turn it into inspiration palette. Well if you have an iPhone theres an app for that.

    Color Palettes from your Photos

    CliqCliq has an app Colors, that is amazingly useful. Just snap a photo with your iPhone and Colors will extract the colors from the photo to give you all the details about the colors in the photo. From RGB to CMYK you will now have the information to find out how to recreate your favorite hotel lobby color scheme or take the colors from an inspirational product packaging and bring it home.

    Colors is available for download for $2.99.

    Color Finder and PANTONE® App

    Code Line has created a great iPhone app, Color Expert, that allows you to play with the Color Finder or flip through a digital PANTONE book anytime you have a little inspiration or time. Use a color extractor, tweak the Color Finder, save palettes, email them and find out the PANTONE number of your favorite colors so you can order them as paints.

    Color Expert is a $9.99 download but since it includes a PANTONE swatch book and values it might be worth it for you interior designers.

    There are probably more apps out there but these two are a great example of how technology is allowing you to have color inspiration anywhere and make sure you capture it to use in your interior design project later.

    The use of flowers in decorating is the perfect way to add fresh lively color to any space. This image below, Kelly Gunether, demonstrates exactly how flowers and plants can take a clean room and add an amazing splash of color to liven the room up.

    From the bold and the beautiful, to the washed out and sun-bleached, I LOVE COLOR.  Perhaps more than any other design principle, color guides my choices and can easily dictate the overall feel of an entire floral event.
