Hue - This is the name of a color. Color and hue are often used interchangeably. When someone asks what color something is, they are actually asking if it is red, blue, yellow, or some other color. The name of the color is hue.

Value - Sometimes referred to as saturation, this is the amount of lightness or darkness in a color. The progression of value is from white (the lightest value) to black (the darkest value). Value is the lightness or darkness of a color. Typically the word shade is incorrectly used instead of using the word value. Shade is always darker than the pure hue. Think of it this way, people seek refuge from the sun by looking for a dark place or a shaded or dark place. If the hue is blue, its value could be lighter or darker thereby producing light blue or dark blue. Light values are produced by adding white to a color which produces what is called tint. Dark values are produced by adding black to a color which produces what is called.

The first of these is paint. People are often shocked by the total transformation that can be done to a room with just a couple of cans of paint. One can make a room seem much more spacious and bright with the right selection of a wall color. Even accents of color throughout a room can liven up a boring room at almost no cost. To get the biggest decorating bang for your buck, it is time to grab a paint brush.

Intensity - This is the amount of brightness or dullness contained in a color. When the intensity of a color is lowered it is considered as being grayed or toned down. An example would be a pure hue of red versus a toned down version resulting in maroon red. You will discover that the pure hue of some colors are preferable than others. For instance, pure red and blue are considered vibrant whereas a pure yellow or green is often considered garish and too intense. Conversely, a hue that has been toned down too much can be considered drab and boring. Knowing the basic properties of color will help you to understand why there are so many colors to choose and how to choose wisely to produce the look you desire in a space.
