So I caved and got an iPhone. Do I regret my sudden lapse of spine? No! Not one bit. I love it love it love it!
Especially the photography apps are great. I have been taking pictures off my house, friends, dog, love and city through retro lenses, lomo apps, faux Polaroid’s eyes and with a great social app called Photoswap. I recently started thinking that people must have invented apps for decorating or design buffs like myself so I did a little scavenger hunt.
The best decorating apps.
This is an app from designer portal dexigner.com. An app for the near pro interior designer. Dexigner provides up to date news about the industry, keeps you up to date on events and calendar, and informs you about events and design events specifically in your area. Not sure if it works globally, but it sure looks great.
2. The Maarten Baas app
I LOVE this one! Dutch designer Maarten Baas surprised many at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, a large furniture trade show in Milan. No expensive hand-made objets, but a sleek and simple alarm clock app for iPhone owners. Now everyone can own a Maarten Baas original! It features actors painting the screen!
3. The Home Depot app
With this app, your window shopping and bargain shopping days will be over. You can use your app to find decorating items for your home without running from store to store. Search for specific items, and make lists so you won’t keep having to go back to the store. The app also has a library of how-to-videos, complete with a shopping list so you can have all your tools and materials on hand to complete the project. The vids alone make it worth it. Shipping limited to countries outside the US unfortunately.
4. The Sherwin Williams paint app
Need some inspiration? Don’t know what color to paint your room? The Sherwin Williams App will make it easy. Take a snapshot of a wall or part of your room, and press “use”. It automatically gives color suggestions. A bit like the many online tools available but a lot easier as you don’t have to upload a picture on the web.
