As I detailed in my last blog post on the “Top Ten Color Mistakes”, since colors are so vital to decorating I want to share my latest find—a digital tool for accurately “reading” colors: the Color Muse.
Basically, the small Color Muse device has its own light source (charged by an internal battery that can be recharged with the included micro USB power cord), and you operate it through an app on your phone. The Color Muse works with an iPhone, iPad or Android phone.
To demonstrate the Color Muse, in the photos below I have used the app to tell me the corresponding Benjamin Moore paint color for the teal canister in a kitchen. After a couple of seconds the Color Muse app chooses “Rendezvous Bay 726” as the closest paint color match. I concur!

If you need help matching colors in your home, I would love to demonstrate the Color Muse tool for you in your next interior home project! I just used it yesterday with a client who purchased a lakefront home in New Hampshire, and she is in search of the existing wall paint color to do some small touch-ups. In two minutes we identified the color…how cool is this techie product???
