{Olympic ColorClix}

I'm not one that is obsessed with apps for my phone, but when I discovered Olympic's ColorClix the other day, I think I squealed out loud. For anyone that loves color, home design, and the ridiculous instant gratification that smart phones offer, you will be instantly in love with this app.

Let me show you what this little gem of an app does...

First, I took one of my favorite photos that I had taken with my phone {this is a spot on our neighborhood road that I love}...


and loaded it into the ColorClix app. And then I was instantly given this...


Pretty sweet huh? The first thing ColorClix gives you is a selection of the main colors in the image, with the corresponding Olympic paint color names.

Then, if you touch on a part of the photo, it gives you that color and matching shades...



You can also get a mix of the complementary colors...


I could honestly play with this app for HOURS. And if that wasn't fun enough, the really awesome feature is that you can take a photo anywhere with your phone and load it right into the app to find matching paint colors.

So say you are out shopping and see the perfect piece of art or pillow that inspires you to paint a room in your home. Take a photo of it, load it into ColorClix, and get an instant list of colors to choose from.

Now I just need about 10 gallons of paint to accomplish my 2012 home goals and I'll be all set! Let me know if you try this out and what you think...I bet you'll be hooked too!


*This post is in no way sponsored by Olympic or ColorClix...I just really love this app!
