Seen a colour you’d love for the house? Maybe it was at the beach, on a fabric or in your friend’s living room, but you don’t know what that colour is or how to describe it?

Resene ColourMatch can help. This colour-matching App allows you to simply take a picture from your iPhone and it will instantly match your chosen colour in the image to one of the thousands of Resene paint colours. Alternatively you can use the app to build a personal colour palette of Resene paint colours from a single image. Perfect for bringing your favourite places into your home.

How it works:
Source an image from your iPhone, either by taking a photo or using an existing image. Then you can either scroll around the image to find the inspirational colour you want or use that image to generate a whole palette of colours. The App not only gives you your colour matches, it also lets to browse through our selection of similar and complementary colours.

You can also search directly for colours, save Resene colours to ‘Your Favourites’ and email them out to friends and family. There’s a ‘Find Store’ function, which helps you find the nearest Resene ColorShop or Reseller to you.

Everything in this smart little App is made to help you make your inspiration a reality, sooner.

Show this App at any Resene owned-ColorShop and you’ll get $1 off testpots.

Please note: ColourMatch is intended to inspire you with colour options. You may experience differences between surface colours and Resene swatches due to differences in lighting, colour temperature and the quality of photos taken with the iPhone camera. It’s always best to refer to actual Resene samples and testpots before painting.

This colour is a representation only. Please refer to the actual paint or product sample. Resene colour charts, testpots and samples are available for ordering online.

Affected by lighting

Version 1.0 with 3G iPhone. I wanted this software to work but, in practical terms, found it wildly inaccurate. The problem is that under differing lighting conditions the same surface can give radically different colour readings - none of which were close to the mark. This renders the product a gimmick,until future upgrades can fix. The potential is there and it will be fantastic when this can be sorted

Palette doesn't work

Great to find a colour if you see one you really like somewhere.
The palette function has never worked in the year + that I have had this app, they should remove it since it doesn't seem to work for anyone...

Colour palette doesn't work

This is great fun, but like others, I'm really disappointed the palette function doesn't work (I have an iPhone 6).
