What is the Color Category?

This one is interesting. Because of its Chroma of 1.44 it’s too colorful to fit in to any of the four categories below. In other words, it’s a color with a high Value of 9.00. So, it has an inherent sense of brightness which comes from it being on the warmer side of the yellow hue family.

This color is a good option if you’re looking for a warm, kind of toasty color of beige. It could flash peachy or pink; but I wouldn’t expect that to happen exterior. And this is a great choice for exterior because it relates to a lot of stone and brick colors.

Always test to see how colors actually show up in your context and lighting. I recommend Samplize Peel & Stick samples because they’re made with real paint.

How do we know which color category? 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:

Whites
Value 9.12 to 10.00
Chroma less than 0.55
Off-Whites
Value 9.12 to 10.00
Chroma 0.55 to 1.15
Light Near Neutrals
Value 8.12 up to 9.12
Chroma 0.1 to 1.00
Near Neutrals
Value 0.1 up to 8.12
Chroma 0.1 to 1.00
