BLANCO and House Beautiful launch new iPad App: 500+ Favorite Paint Colors
LUMBERTON, NJ June 2011 — The search for the perfect paint color ends now with BLANCO and House Beautiful’s 500+ Favorite Paint Colors App for iPad, available now in the iTunes App Store. BLANCO and House Beautiful, the go-to color authorities, bring the best of their color expertise together with this app. BLANCO is the exclusive sponsor of the new app, which is the ideal resource for finding the perfect color for every room in the house.

Inside the app, BLANCO reveals the secrets behind coordinating countertops with beautiful sinks in a variety of colors and styles. Inspirational kitchen photography ignites ideas for design, color and more.


Find favorite colors in a variety of ways by searching specific paint shades, viewing “Editors’ Picks” for a curated collection from the editors – or, by clicking on the “Color Personality” tool to find the hue that fits you best. App users can save their favorites in “My Paint Box,” where up to four colors can be compared side-by-side. Paint colors can also be viewed in full screen – a digital version of a paint swatch so users can hold it up and see how it looks before committing to painting the entire wall.


“BLANCO’s intelligent and thoughtful collection of SILGRANIT® II sinks has established us as the market leader in color,” states Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “In partnering with the experts at House Beautiful, this new app allows our customers, consumers and designers to expand their palette and inspire their imagination.”
