There are not enough happy-dance gifs on the Internet to convey our excitement about Apartment Therapy's game-changing new feature, Color Search: Thanks to our partnership with Sherwin-Williams, you can now scan our thousands of House Tour photos by color! (Search terms are so 2013, don't you think?)
Whether you're debating an orange bedroom or wondering what colors look best in a blue dining room, Color Search will show you real-life homes that play with the same palettes — up to five colors in one search. It's a fun new way to look at our fabulous House Tours, and it takes the guess work out of finding your favorite colors.
For years, we've wanted to unlock our House Tours and make it easier for our awesome readers (that's you) to find inspiration in real homes, and Sherwin-Williams has helped us do it even better than we imagined.
Color Search is all about you. Say you're seeking inspiration for a room with blue walls and red accents: Just select your colors and slide the color scale to adjust proportions (so, a larger gray bar and smaller pink one). Want that blue a little cooler? Just click the color bar to tweak. Hit search and voila — a slew of House Tour images, from colorful bookshelves to poppy kitchens, with the same bright ideas!
Click on a photo to visit the original Tour and peep the pre-loaded color palettes found on all of our House Tour pics. (Pro tip: Click the palette to launch a new search of that color combo.) Ready to start painting? Click on the photo you love and then click on the "Chip It!" button on the right to get your Sherwin-Williams paint colors!
