CONTEXT, CONTEXT, CONTEXT!
Here’s Simply White OC-117 by Benjamin Moore in context of its Hue Family neighborhood, 8 Y, on The Color Strategist Color Wheel. The pink arrows point to where Simply White OC-117 fits in among the other colors according to its Value 9.46 rounded to 9.50 and Chroma of 0.50.
Simply White belongs to the Yellow Hue Family. If you look where it plots out on The Color Strategist Color Wheel above, you can see that it’s 8.85 Y. That means it’s towards the end of the 8 Y section and almost to 9 Y. You can see by looking at The Color Strategist Color Wheel that Simply White belongs to the end of the Yellow Hue Family more over towards the beginning of the Green-Yellow Hue Family.
Near neutral colors of white from this Hue Family neighborhood are perceived as being warm, yet neutral in appearance.
Simply White’s Chroma means it will look cleaner and more crisp than colors of white typically described as “creamy” or “ivory”.
To test Simply White OC-117 in your space. I highly recommend Swatch Right Paint-Peel-and-Stick Color Sample Decals.
Order online and get your Swatch Kit within a couple days.
Here’s why Swatch Right™ works better than a white, square board:
YOUR OBJECTIVE IS TO PREVIEW AND EVALUATE COLOR. NOT WALLBOARD.
Swatch Right™ mimics the behavior of paint film. Swatch Right™ is a 12″ ergonomically engineered, circle-shaped, paint color sample decal. Hold the tab, paint, peel-and-stick to preview wall color. It’s fun!
“It’s completely flexible and conforms to shapes and contours – walls, ceilings, trim, corners. . . just about anywhere! Plus, you can repaint and use the decals multiple times.”
