If you’ve ever considered designing an entire room around a photograph or one piece of art, Lifehacker has found the tool for you. The Color Palette Generator lets you upload an image and automatically generates a few color palettes that match. It’ll still be up to you to bring home a bunch of paint chips to find the perfect paint colors, but it’s great because it shows you three schemes – light, medium and dark – so you can pick a matching palette whether you’re going for light and airy, dark and moody or somewhere in between.
Below are some of our pictures that we played around with (even though we have zero plans to repaint any of our rooms).

You can experiment for yourself (for free!) right here. Happy paint paletting…
