What is the Color Category?

OFF-WHITE – because of its Value of 9.16 and Chroma of 0.72. Marshmallow is a lovely middle of the Off-White category color. If you’re looking for a light, warm greige – beige color with a hint of color, this is a good color to sample.

How do we know it’s an Off-White? 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

    I just found your site and I LOVE it! It is helping me select a paint color for my home’s interior.

    Could you possibly post an analysis / page for Sherwin Williams’ 7002 Downy? It must be a new color offering for SW. I was able to find my other candidates on your site — 7102 White Flour and 7566 Westhighland White.

    Thank you!

  2. The information you have here is very good. I would still like to know more info. For example, how does this paint colour do in north, east, west and southern exposures? What are the undertones? Thanks.

    1. Hi BJC,

      The theory that paint colors have undertones is based on subjective judgment. Undertones are just someone’s subjective opinion about what a color looks like under whatever random light source there happens to be.

      Undertones aren’t color science, they’re not measurable attributes which is why it’s impossible to categorize paint colors according to the theory that paint colors have undertones.

      As far as the geographical orientation of the windows and doors and the quality of light they let in, that’s also a moving target. The inherent quality of light changes all day, every day so it’s not something anyone can pin point.

      At best, you can describe the quality of light in a space as dim, moderate or abundant. But, again, that’s something that’s unique to a specific context and not something we can quantify.
