What is the Color Category?

WHITE – because of its Value of 9.13 and Chroma of 0.46. Most importantly because of its hue family – towards the end of the yellow hue family over near green-yellow – Vanilla Milkshake is likely to be perceived a barely-there greige-y kind of color. It has enough Chroma to contrast, harmonize, relate to other colors of white like Chantilly Lace or Extra White.

Value and LRV both speak to the brightness or luminance of a color. Coming in at a Value of 9.13, Vanilla Milkshake isn’t going to show up as a stark, bright white. It’s a smidge darker than that which can make it feel like a calmer, more muted shade of white.
