Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or a design professional, these iPhone apps help solve common interior design problems in minutes.
Problem: You want to find a wall color to match the colors in your bedding, but lugging the whole thing with you to the paint store is nearly impossible.
Solution: Use a paint color matching app, such as Sherwin Williams’ Color Snap or Benjamin Moore’s Color Capture to help you pick a color. You can snap a picture of the bedding, then use the app to pick out an individual color or find a color scheme that works. Then save that color to your phone, and head to the paint store to pick it up. Easy as pie!
