The following post is brought to you by Sherwin-Williams. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design.
For this week’s CMYLK, we’ve experimented with Sherwin-Williams’ new Chip It! color tool, which creates instant color palettes from any image on the web. We chose four paintings by Australian artist Miranda Skoczek, who works in a mixture of oil, acrylic, and enamel. Skoczek, who works out of Melbourne, combines graphic shapes and silhouettes in fields of color, including pyramids and the what looks to be the Queen, to explore the boundaries between abstraction and representation, design and the painterly. As you can see, from both her work and the palettes, the pieces also combine neutrals with saturated brights.
Like what we’ve made? You can do it, too! Create custom color palettes of up to 10 colors from any image on the web by using the Chip It! tool at letschipit.com. Simply enter an image URL or download the nifty Chip It! bookmarklet and hover over any image on the Internet. You can log in using Facebook to collect your favorite palettes, too.
We love the idea of building a room’s color theme (from paint to accessories) around one of your favorite pictures. Imagine finding the perfect paint color simply from the image of a patterned pillow you found online, or picture surrounding yourself with the breeze and blue skies of Hawaii by creating a palette from your vacation photographs. It’s so fun, we just can’t stop!
