Our Color DNA Table has notations for 6,000+ colors from major brands including Farrow & Ball and Magnolia Home!

What is the Color Category?

WHITE – because of its Value of 9.34 and Chroma of 0.44. It’s light and bright but not stark thanks to its Chroma of 0.44. Just enough colorfulness to knock it back from a bright white. Crisp, clean and subdued without being glaring or clinical.

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:

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
