My Image Inspiration

Color is so ubiquitous that we sometimes take it for granted. But honestly, can you imagine a life without it? It’s astounding how many beautiful shades of beige and brown can be found in something as mundane as rope, which is why we love examining nature and ordinary objects for color inspiration. But how do you translate those hues into a project? Enter Glidden® Paint’s My Colortopia and their many color tools – our favorite being My Image Inspiration. By simply uploading a photograph, you can generate a selection of matching and coordinating colors. For someone who constantly works with color and paint, it’s a tool that has no boundaries. Now that’s inspiring.

  2. Pretty awesome feature. It reminds me of that feature on photoshop. I love being able to pick out a small area of a photo and see what that color looks like on its own. Its a a brilliant idea to be able to create your own paint through this technique.

    Thank you for posting this! It’s exactly how I feel about color– there are so many hidden colors when you just look a bit longer.
