Patina

PATINA

What a gorgeous wall!

Architects “Jane Kim Design” did such a fine job by introducing patina-ted copper panels that match with the mirror, onto the entire wall, enhancing and expanding the character and beauty of the mirror. And oh! By the way, the mirror was bought from an architectural salvage store! How awesome is that?

Beauty can not be confined within high end stores…You only need to expand your horizon and put your thinking cap on!

Chip It By Sherwin Williams

CHIP IT BY SHERWIN WILLIAMS

Choosing a paint color can be quite a difficult task. Especially, if the knowledge of color theory never expanded beyond scribbling crayons on paper in elementary school. You think that the paint you picked matched the colors of your inspiration picture perfectly, until…. they’re slapped on the walls!

Most people are disappointed to find, what looks good on paint chips might really not be what was originally imagined. And this is where Sherwin Williams Chip-it proves to be the magic lamp for home owners and designers.

LetsChipIt.com is a web site created by McKinney for Sherwin Williams. It analyzes all the pixels in an image and finds the right equivalent to one of Sherwin Williams 1500  paint colors. This technology enables people with or without design /color background to create color palettes with ease, narrowing any scope of a mistake.

So now that you know about it, what are you waiting for? “Chip it” your inspiration picture and start dipping that brush!
