Color is meant to be a celebration of life. Whether you are going with a peaceful subtle palette, or are coming in with a bold palette, you are celebrating the beauty of what nature has to offer. Let's break down the terminology you will hear. Understanding a few words, will enlighten your knowledge and give you the opportunity to explore the world of color more fully.

  1. Hue is another name for every color in the color wheel.

  2. Tint is the color you get when you add white to a color. This will lighten the color.
    1. E.g. Tints of Red. Red is the primary color. All the colors lighter than the primary are called tints, because they are lighter in various degrees to the main color of red.
    2. Tints are often referred to as pastels.
  3. Tone is the color you get when add white and black to a color. Consider this like adding grey to a color. 
    1. E.g. Red Tones. When you are working with tones, it will depend on the quantity of white or black added to the primary color. Hues with more white than black added, will be lighter. Hues with more black than white added, will be darker. 
    2. Tones are different from Tint or Shade colors, because both black and white have been added in various degrees, to the color's hue.
  4. Shade is the color you get when you add black to a color. 
    1. Shades of Red. Red is the primary color. All the colors darker than the primary color are called shades, because they are darker in various degrees to the main color of red.
