You’re looking for a specific paint color to match a favorite throw pillow, so you bring the pillow to your hardware store to see if they can match it, or at least come close. Or maybe you head to the rack of paint chips and pore over hundreds of color options, only to feel more overwhelmed than when you first stepped into the store. Sound familiar? To us, too. So we were thrilled to discover a little tool that takes the guesswork out of color matching, making the whole paint-choosing process quick and easy: the Datacolor ColorReader EZ.
Here’s how it works: Download the ColorReader app, sync it to your smartphone, and you’re ready to go. Scan the flat surface of any color you like with the handy, portable ColorReader EZ device to get the top three color matches from the most popular paint brands. Tap that color to find coordinating colors as well as color palette ideas (Complementary, Triad, Monochromatic, and Analogous color schemes) so you’ll always know which colors go together. You can create and save color palettes by project and share them with family, friends, your paint store, anyone. Think of the ColorReader EZ as your personal, pocket-sized color advisor.
Capture color inspiration from table or bed linens, ceramics, the sofa, rugs, even a favorite jacket—whether you’re redoing an entire room or smaller DIY paint projects.
