What is the Color Category?

Surprise! Divine White isn’t a color of White because of its Value of 8.73 and Chroma of 1.13. Mostly because of its Value — it’s too dark. Chroma-wise it’s right on the border of qualifying as more neutral and venturing in to a full-on color. Divine is a good choice for rooms with a dim quality of light because it has enough Chromaticity to bust through the dimness while having an inherent brightness that comes from its yellow hue family pedigree.

You’ll want to watch for it to flash peachy or fleshy under some light sources, in certain contexts. In a balanced quality of light, many would describe it as a warm beige or tan.

How do we know? 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:
