Decorating Apps

Check out these fun and useful apps for iPhone - so great!

1. Yard Sale (free): See all yard sales within a 20 mile radius, and use the map feature to get you there! Head out any Thursday-Sunday to hunt for those "diamonds in the rough" to refurb, repaint, rehab, and reupholster.
2. iHandy Carpenter ($1.99): Use the ruler to measure smaller objects, and the level to straighten horizonally or vertically as you work on hanging that picture just right! 3. Color Snap (free): Take a photo of that flower on your couch or other upholstery/fabric, and Sherwin Williams will match the color, and suggest two complementary ones.

4. ColorChange ($2.99): If you'd like to know what your living room would look like painted navy blue before you take the plunge, take a photo with your phone, and then "paint" the walls for a sneak preview/reality check!5. Ben Color Capture (free): Take a picture on your phone, and use this app to find six similar colors ("strip"), or four complementary colors ("harmony").
