Get Hue, Value, Chroma and LRV for Paint Colors

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.

Chroma of 0.44 is important to note.

Because if you look at the brackets below, you’ll see that Pure White is weighted on the heavier end of Chroma for a color of white.

That means it’s not a super neutral or “clean” white.

For those who perceive some white paint colors as stark, this color is a good option for you.

How can we so clearly and concisely categorize color of whites and off-whites? Because we have hue, value, chroma and LRV color notations that describe what colors look like. So, we can easily eliminate confusion and chaos. Making the task of sorting and categorizing paint colors fun and an absolute pleasure:

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
