Search Art by Color:
The purpose of this paintings search tool is to allow you to search for paintings that fit your color scheme.
When I repainted my walls, I realized that some of my old artwork clashed with the new color scheme.
I recently went to buy new artwork and I wanted to make sure it would complement my new wall colors well, so I built this tool to help.
It was also a fun project to learn more about color theory and color math. Let me know if you have any questions or feedback in the comments below!
Use the built-in color picker or enter in the color's hex code directly.

Use this to search for paintings by hex code.
When you upload an image, the algorithm will create a color palette of your image, create a complementary color palette, and use that one to search for paintings.
This ensures that any artwork will complement your space well.
We recommend photographing your space with good, natural lighting to avoid color distortion.
