While skimming through this month’s Elle Decor, I came across an article that talked about some new design apps for the iPhone.
Looking for a counter or backsplash? The CesarStoneMobileGallery allows you to browse 42 different quartz surfaces by hue and texture, and calculate how much you’ll need for a project.
Another pocket-sized swatchbook, DuPont’s mySurface, lets users view 100 Corian and 60-plus Zodiaq quartz colors, for use on cabinets, counters, bathroom vanities and even furniture. Both free apps also make it easy to order samples.
MyPantone, meanwhile, displays 5,251 shades, so it’s easy to select the perfect yellow, lavender, or cornflower blue and assemble palettes for everything from paint to window treatments. The program can also analyze digital photos to find matching Pantone chips; it costs $10.
All three apps can be purchased from the iTunes App Store.
