The most commonly known and considered aspect of color:

  • Chroma – The actual color. We simply refer to this aspect as color. When people talk about matching, they’re referring to this aspect.

The least considered aspects of color:

  • Value – The lightness and darkness of a color; tints and shades.
  • Temperature – Whether a color is cool or warm, and yes a blue can be warm or cool.
  • Intensity – The vibrancy of a color.

The unknown, and crucially important, aspects of color:

  • Distribution – The location of color, where the color is used and the proximity of a color to other colors. The nature and personality of a color can drastically change when it’s location is changed.
  • Quantity – The amount of a color used. Large amounts of red will be perceived differently than red used as an accent.
