Ready, Set... Chip It!

I've just discovered the most fantastic tool! Have you tried Sherwin Williams Chip It program? If not, hold on to your seats. I'm about to drop you some quick and easy inspiration. I've been thinking of taking some of my photographs and making color palettes based on them, kind-of like I do when I actually find time to do an Inspiration Board for a whole room design. Ready? Now this post is a little bit of an experiment to see if I can get the program to work. I may have to post the image then repost with the chips.

 This is one of my newer photos. I know I've said it a million times over, but nothing inspires me like God's artistry with nature. How beautiful is this pasture scene I took a few months ago on our second trip to Biltmore Estate (just in time to see all the flowers!)?

Now, for the Chip It colors. I'm dying to see what it pulls from this. No, let me warn you, most of what I've seen with this program are colors I would use sparingly, because they are intense. An idea would be to take the color recommended, get the color card and find one several shades lighter on the same card for large areas like walls.

O.k. Here it is:

How cool is that? Inspired? Good. Oh, has this just got my mind reeling! I can't wait to share more:)


One of the highlights of each day is hearing from my readers!
