Color Families

While every one of the infinite shades and tones of each color is unique, Glidden looks at color in groups of families. These "Color Families" are based on hue, such as Reds, Greens, or Off-Whites.
The colors within a family share a variety of characteristics, and generally create similar looks and feels. The psychology of color is important when choosing a combination for your space: Reds can create a passionate, warm environment, and Greens can create soothing, calm atmospheres.
