Color Theory : Achromatic Color Scheme

Welcome to Week Thirty-Three of p52.2 : Framed. This week we continue our month-long study of color as we play with achromatic colors. By definition, achromatic means, “free from, or without color.”

An achromatic color scheme is one without color. Any color scheme that possesses no hue is said to be achromatic; these color schemes often involve black and white, with various values of gray. Achromatic colors are often used in kitchens or bathrooms-especially in modern or contemporary interiors.
