Decor and interior lovers, you need to get a load of this! I’m not usually one to talk techie stuff, but I’ve just discovered a new app that’s going to rock your world. Patternsnap is most appropriately described by Harpers Bazaar Interiors, as ‘the Shazam of the interiors world.’

We’ve all had that frustrating experience of having seen a fabric or wallpaper that you loved, but didn’t or couldn’t get the name of it, so you spent hours online looking for it, or a good alternative. Sound familiar? With this app, you can just snap a photo or upload an image, and Patternsnap delivers either a positive ID on your desired pattern, or a selection of the closest matches. Ok, so I’m making it sound a bit like Interpol for decorators, but seriously, how awesome is that?!

It’s got to be the coolest way to search, save and share wallpaper and fabric options on your iPhone or iPad. And a very useful tool for team projects.

The screenshots give a taster of what its about but you must take a look for yourself.

    I so totally agree with everything you said. I also discovered this app and it has very quickly become my ‘go to’ tool of choice. It’s amazing. It recognises a mind boggling number of patterns and any that aren’t here just simply aren’t worth knowing about. Couldn’t recommend it more. Everyone should give this one a go.

      Hi Bridget, I agree – it really is a must have! I can’t believe it took me to long to discover it. Thanks for stopping by & leaving your comment. Kath
