Yesterday I squeezed in a little time to catch up on my email/blog reading and I came across this new fun tool by Sherwin Williams called Chip It. OH MY!!! Welcome to our new time suck!
If you are like me, you find color inspiration everywhere... but I rarely have my paint deck on me so pulling it out to create a color pallet is never going to happen. This tool lets you pick a picture anywhere on the web, click a button, and then it will create a color pallet for you! It is like having your very own Design Seeds!
Oh... and once you are done you can immediately Pin It! Crazy cool! And also... if you are not quite happy with the first set of colors it pulls from the image, there is a little button that says "More Colors" and it will expand the color selection.
Here is an example:
I love this picture and color pallet! There are so many colors... but it just pulled the teal and some muted grays. BORING! Hit the "More Colors" button...
Now if you could only move the colors around to create a five chip color selection... that would be awesome! Are you reading this Sherwin-Williams?
A few more I played with...
All of these were Pinned to my Pinterest account. I also like the fact that if you create a color pallet from a picture on web, the tool also keeps the original image location!
Alright! Start making your color pallets, but let me warn you... you will not be able to stop! You will be looking for photos just to see what color it will come up with! And then you can go to our other favorite time suck Pinterest and look at all of you amazing color pallets!
