Jill Chivers of Shop Your Wardrobe and I got together recently and made a series of videos about colour which I will be sharing with you over the next few weeks.
The first video is an introduction to colour systems – from the 4 Seasons through to the 18 directional Absolute Colour System.
One of the aspects we discuss is Albert Munsell’s colour properties and how that is used in personal colour analysis.
Munsell figured out that colours have different properties:
- Value – Light to Dark
- Chroma – Intensity or Saturation (brighness to mutedness)
- Undertone – Warmth to Coolness (blue based or yellow based colours)
So personal colour analysis looks for those properties in you, and then the most harmonious colours are those that match your personal colour properties.
