Because it has a broader range of pigments in the blend, the paint reflects a broader range of light, and coordinates more easily with the colors around them. It is almost chameleon-like in its ability to pick up colors from adjacent materials, and to change character as the light changes. . .Because they don't have any black, the colors don't tend to turn muddy, or lose their character in low light conditions. Not only do these paint colors work well with the natural materials around them, they work well with each other, taking much of the fear of potentially bad color coordination away. For a novice, it's almost hard to make a mistake. . . The general reaction is WOW! . . . One contractor I work with refers to them as my 'magic paint colors', which always makes me smile."

Choosing the right color to produce the effect you want may seem like a challenge, so I’ve outlined the basics of how colors affect the human psyche below to help you out.
