Do you love vintage furniture and décor? Then, you probably know the struggle to find the perfect item in great condition. Luckily, Chairish helps bring people together to find just what you need. It’s a virtual flea market you can search for that vintage chair or wall hanging that you’ve been looking for.

Have you ever found a color that you wanted to paint your walls, but you weren’t sure what it was called? You didn’t know if it would match your room? Maybe you wanted a paint color that would match the floral design on your favorite throw pillows. ColorSnap Visualizer from Sherwin-Williams can help. The app allows you to take a picture of the color you want to find. Then, it analyzes that color and tells you which paint color to purchase. It also provides virtual sample rooms, so you can see how the color looks on the walls.

Homestyle Interior Design
You have an empty room and no idea what to do with it, this home design app can help. What furniture should you get? What items would fit the space? With the Homestyle Interior Design app, you can take a picture of the room and superimpose 3D models of furniture into the space. Then, share your designs with others for feedback. Or, check out ideas that others have posted to get your own inspiration.

Before heading out to buy a couch, you need to measure the space. You don’t want to bring the couch home only to find out that it doesn’t fit through the doorway or reduces space for foot traffic. Instead of worrying about finding a tape measure, download the MagicPlan app. Then, take a picture of the room and doorway. The app will provide measurements for you with a floorplan you can use to determine what furniture you can add to it.

Mark on Call
The Mark on Call app is similar to MagicPlan in that it allows you to create floorplans for the rooms in your house. Use the plans to pick out furniture and plan the layout. You can even upload pictures of patterns and finishes to see how everything will work together.
