This article is based on finding online a place where we would be able to test a color with our own home pictures, without the need to go somewhere. So we went to the online store of Benjamin Moore, and used the Color Viewer. We created a test account for this to try it out. Simple because we would like to be able to use our own pictures. After you register, you can upload your own pictures and even save them. Click on the picture to go there !

And even if it would not be perfect (For example in our picture the lamp did get in the paint as well) it is a perfect solution to find the correct colors for your space.

Above is just a simple example of what you already can do online, and there are  many more places where you can do the same (Or even better.) So we would like to ask you to send us all the places that you can find where you can do the same as above. Or even more.

For example if you go to, they have here a similar idea, but you can only use existing pictures. Not your own.
