This post is brought to you by Sherwin-Williams®. Turn your inspiration into reality with Sherwin-Williams Color Selection Tools. For years, we've been recreating spaces that inspire us on Remodelista in our Steal This Look series, sourcing items to help our readers mimic the look in their own homes. One element is always a challenge: matching paint colors. So when we started experimenting with  Chip It!™ from Sherwin-Williams®, the challenge was simplified. This tool allows you to match the corresponding colors from any image. Simply drag or upload a photo and click it to create a matching color palette.  Inspired by this eclectic 1950's Napa Valley ranch house, we used the tool to explore how we'd capture some of its colorful essence in smaller ways.

To capture the aesthetic of her eclectic space, we first created a Chip It!™ profile and uploaded a photo of her living room. Photo by Laure Joliet .

Above: Tricorn Black , Auric , and Saffron Thread are each rich shades that would make a statement on a large wall or painted on a smaller table. This post is brought to you by Sherwin-Williams.
