WHITE – because of its Value of 9.25 and Chroma of 0.52. Now, keep in mind with a Chroma of 0.52 it’s pushing the boundary of white teetering on the edge towards an off-white. So Atrium is going to have more color than Extra White, for example.
So, Atrium White is an amazing option if you’re looking for a barely-there wall color that will contrast nicely with a cleaner color of white on trim, doors and cabinets.
However, be aware that it could flash purple or pink. This is because of its hue family. In a balanced quality of light it’s going to show up as a very light greige kind of color.
How do we know all this? Because we have hue, value, chroma and LRV color notations that describe what colors look like. So, we can easily sort and categorize paint colors:
