We love house tours because they offer a glimpse inside all sorts of interesting homes, whether they be urban apartments, sunny cottages or sprawling ranches. These images provide us with tons of decorating inspiration, DIY ideas and of course fabulous color palettes. And with easy online apps, like Benjamin Moore's Color Capture and Sherwin-William's Chip It! tool (which we used below), it only takes a minute to upload a photo of a home you like on your computer or smart phone and produce a handy color card with coordinating paint color names. So the next time you are drooling over a vibrant interior shot wondering if you could replicate the look in your own home, you can!
