What is the Color Category?

Light Near Neutral – because of its Value of 8.90 and Chroma of 0.65.

Interior, this color will fit the expectation of a “greige”. More color that straight white with a hint of gray but not too beige or tan with a light and airy vibe.

Light near neutrals are great options for exterior trim colors. Because they show up outside brighter and lighter than you’d think. If you want white trim but not stark, glaring white trim a near neutral like Zurich is a good option.
