When the eye sees a color it is immediately excited and it is its nature, spontaneously and of necessity, at once to produce another, which with the original color, comprehends the whole chromatic scale. Goethe, Theory of Colors
Hue, Intensity & Value
Hue is the base color for example, pure red or blue.
Intensity (also called saturation) is the amount of color. The lower the saturation, the more gray the color is.
Value (also called brightness or luma) is the whiteness of a color. A value of 0% would be black, while a value of 100% would be the pure color.
RGB COLOR MODEL
RED GREEN BLUE
In the retina of the eye, there are three kinds of color receptors, called cone cells. The three kinds of cone cells are sensitive to the short, medium, and long wavelengths of visible light, respectively. The RGB color model approximates the way human vision encodes images by using three primary color channels: red, green, and blue. The RGB color model is additive, which means the red, green, and blue channels combine to create all the available colors in the system. When all three primary color values are the same, the result is neutral, or grayscale. For example, if all three primary colors are 0 percent, the result is black. If all three primary colors are 100 percent (the maximum value), the result is white. When all three primary color channels are nearly the same strength, the result appears neutral with a slight color cast, depending on which channel is the strongest. For example, if the value of the red channel is higher than the value of the blue and green channels, the result is a slightly red image. Secondary colors are combinations of two primary colors: red plus green is yellow, green plus blue is cyan, and blue plus red is magenta.
RYB COLOR MODEL
RED YELLOW BLUE
It is a historical set of subtractive primary colors. It is primarily used in art and art education, particularly painting. It predates modern scientific color theory.

CMYK COLOR MODEL
CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK
The CMYK color model is a subtractive color model, used in color printing, and is also used to describe the printing process itself. The CMYK model works by partially or entirely masking colors on a lighter, usually white, background. The ink reduces the light that would otherwise be reflected. Such a model is called subtractive because inks "subtract" brightness from white.
The images are separated for printing with process cyan, magenta, and yellow inks.
These images are separated with maximum black, to minimize ink use
COLOR IN INTERIOR DESIGN
Color is a major element in scale. A small room can have a larger look by the use of closely related values, hues, and intensity. A large room can be made to look smaller by marked contrasts of color and value, hue, and intensity. Value is one of the most important elements. Whether light or dark, little value contrast makes for unity, and sharper contrast makes for stronger punctuation. Van Day Truex, Interiors, Character, and Colo
I wonder if any element of interior design is more personal than color? Nothing can more quickly reveal aspect of personality and character than the choice - or absence - of color. Van Day Truex, Interiors, Character, and Color
Remember, color is not just color, but mood, temperature and structure. Too many bright colors make for congestion. Too many bright colors need, above all, contrast in value, to eliminate vibration.
