5 Fun Home Decorating Apps for the iPhone & iPad

Here are a few fun apps to fuel your decorating habits!

Dream Home - an app that keeps you up to speed with the latest design trends with design ideas for every room in your house. There are TONS of beautiful photos and you don't need an internet connection to view them. Users can even upload their own rooms for people to rate, and you can save your favorites in a folder.

There's even a free version available, which is just as awesome!

Color Snap & Ben Color - From Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore, these two apps allow you to snap a picture of a paint color and match it to one of their paint colors. I love their paints and have had excellent experiences with both so this definitely comes in handy! Oh and did I mention it's free?

ColorChange - I've received a few comments about the presto-chango wall color treatment I did using Photoshop in our entryway. If you don't have PS and happen to have an iPhone, for $2.99 this app can do the same thing. Take a photo of your room, upload it and use their paint colors to change your walls and help you find the perfect fit. It does have a bit of a tough time in low-light conditions and, like Photoshop, it's really better for finding the right range of colors rather than an exact shade. But if you just can't decide between that sage or blue paint you picked out, this app can show you how they would look in your room and help you make up your mind.

Handy Man DIY - An awesome home improvement planner. This app is really helpful when you need to calculate the square footage of a room for painting or for buying trim or flooring. It also lets you keep track of your budget with pricing, organizational and shopping lists. Plus, if you're stuck on a project there are lots of video how-tos and instructions to help you out.
