Big Color Matching News
Hey color lovers! I am just busting with excitement over this one. Valspar paint has just launched the coolest color finding tool ever with the launch of Ask Val by Valspar. They have partnered with Pinterest and created a pin color analyzer that will pick color matches from your Pinterest boards or pins.
This is destined to be your new friend and Pinterest color companion. You are definitely going to want to check it out. I mean right now, really, right now, no, read this first to get the lowdown, then go. Or, go if you have to, but come back. Ask Val.
Valspar + Pinterest
Pin Color Analyzer
Get ready to have your mind blown away!
Valspar + Pinterest have hooked up to help you find paint color matches for any of your amazingly beautiful and colorful pins. Yes, it’s true. They have created a simple and easy process to get set up and to find your perfect color. Get color chips, hook up color matches, even find professional advice.
Turn your pins to palettes! Use the Valspar Pinterest Analyzer. Find a color. Get a chip.
The pin color analyzer can scan a whole board or an individual pin. The green example at the top of the page is the result of using the new pin analyzer on our Living With Color: Green Pinterest Board which is loaded with plenty of green design inspiration.
You can see and follow all our Living With Color Designs Pinterest Boards here.
Below you see the results of analyzing an individual pin which was a picture from the blog post: Sizzling Orange and Pink and a favorite Turquoise pin.
Your initial results leave one chip blank with an eye dropper and then you can click anywhere on your picture to add one additional color.
Not exactly what you were wanting? Use the eyedropper again on another part of you picture for another option.
In the example below of a pin from my blog post about Wesley Hall furniture you can see the additional chip filled in from my eyedropper selection.

Maybe you need more help than what your Pinterest board will deliver. Not to worry. Connect with their experts. Upload and share inspiration. Get personalized color palettes.
Match colors from photos you’ve snapped. Upload a favorite photo. They’ll match the photo colors to their chips. So you can love your color!
I found the upload your own pics a little less satisfying then the pin analyzer, but hey, nothing rocks more than picking color chips directly from our Pinterest pins. Yea!
So here is what I found using a photo from the scrumptious Bohemian Garden Cocktail Party blog post. Using the full uncropped photo presented a lot of colors I wasn’t really trying to capture, like shadows and other things.
Oh yeah, and the big news is you can match paint chips to your pinterest board!!
I love Valspar. Just Saying. Ok. I can’t resist showing just one more from my Pinterest boards of Living With Color Designs & The Table’s Garden Party Tablescape Shoot. Love this one.
Now go to Ask Val to try out the Valspar + Pinterest: Pin Color Analyzer. Right now.
Go Play. Have fun. – Marianne
