But now I have a “Decorator’s Assistant” to make this task more exciting and definitely more fun! No, the assistant is not a human being that I bring with me to your home. This “Decorator’s Assistant” is a handy-dandy little App on my iPhone. I take a picture with the iPhone of the print, pattern or color and it sorts, copies, and chooses the paint colors that appear in the print, pattern or color. How’s that for an assistant?

In most instances this little assistant gets the colors spot on correct, and that’s wonderful! But it still takes a trained eye and years of experience to know how much of the color, the placement of the color, the sheen of the color and if the color needs adjusting in saturation or undertone to make it work! The combinations are limitless for instance, but the real trick is choosing the right combination for the space in the right light!
So although this little “Decorator’s Assistant” is a great help, you still need the “Professional Decorator” to master the color decisions. Thank Goodness!
