What is the Color Category?

OFF-WHITE – because of its Value of 9.36 and Chroma of 0.78. This is the color for you if you’re looking for a creamy off-white. It falls on the warmer side of the yellow hue family. Closer to the middle of the yellow hue family than the neighboring yellow-red hue family. Which is a good thing for that factor of creamy off-white that’s less likely to flash peach or pink. It’s nice and bright with a Value of 9.36. And with a Chroma of 0.78 it has some body and substance but won’t be mistaken for a beige or tan.

For exterior, I would definitely test this one out if you’re wanting to go white but not blinding, glaring, stark white. 

I recommend Samplize Peel & Stick samples because they’re real paint.

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
