A Cool Tool Review

Today over on the Yellow Cape Cod I was introduced to a sweet new tool that I can use for decorating inspiration.  You know those totally inspiring photos on Pinterest that have the color palates pulled from them?  Well this Chip It! tool from Sherwin-Williams gives you the ability to create your own custom color palates from any photo and save them on their site.  So I tried it out on a few photo favorites that I had pinned on Pinterest.  Here are my results:

It's not perfect.  The yellows turned a little too golden instead of a nice citrus, and the tool fails to pick up on small pops of color that tend to make a room or photo feel balanced and complete.  None the less, I feel like this is a good starting point to find inspiration for a new room or to find additional colors to add to an established room.  Plus you get a list of specific paint colors to go find in the store.  Seems a lot easier than attempting to sort through 10 similar shades of blue trying to find just the right one.  Try it out and let me know what you think!
