Brewers Decorator Centres are conducting a trial period to test a new colour matching technology called Color Eye, and would like to open up the trial to Decorators Forum members.

Color-Eye is a small, transportable card that gives users the ability to use their smartphone for colour matching to paint colour ranges available for mixing. Paired with an app, the Color-Eye card calibrates your smartphone to the exact colours printed on the card and can tell how your camera is interpreting them in different light conditions.

For the trial, Brewers have created a basic app that works on an iPhone 5s or newer but their intention (if successful) is to expand to Android phones too. If you would like to take part in the trial please head over to
