Following on from yesterdays post on how pops of colour can really help you update your space, i'm working with Dulux again in this post to show you a fun little app I've recently been made aware of, the Dulux Visualiser app.
This little bit of software is designed to easily let you imagine what an area of your home would look like had it been painted with a certain shade of Dulux paint. I have to admit its pretty addictive when you get into it and Tom and I spent a good twenty minutes going from room to room seeing what walls would look like in lots of different shades. I tend to choose bright yellows and blues (I'm nothing if not predictable) and since then I'm really eager to paint our bathroom door Lemon Punch. I really love the idea of small areas with loud colour themes against an expanse of white walls. What I love is that I was already drawn to this colour but the visualiser showed me that it wouldn't be right for for a large area such as the bathroom walls.
I was also really impressed how it picked up objects in the room and didn't paint over everything in yellow. You can also save each image and compare the same space in different shades or colours which I think really helps when visualising a space.
Here's what Wilf's room would look like if we let him paint it blue like he wants!
The app is free to download on iTunes or Google Play and with a really large section of colours its great to imagine your latest DIY project. The Dulux Visualizer can suggest colour schemes to help complete the look of a space you are looking to paint. Gone are the days when you have to pick up paint charts and hold them against walls (or paint little squares that are left on your walls for weeks whilst you decide).
What do you think of the visualiser app? Is it something you think you'd use for your DIY projects?
