Based on the historic findings of Johannes Itten's early work with the Color Wheel, House of Colour has developed a system of color analysis that is rooted in history and science. Itten's work as a student and professor at the Bauhaus in Germany led him to observe that all colors are either BLUE based or YELLOW based (except TRUE RED which is a perfect blend of both). Itten subdivided both the BLUE and YELLOW palettes into BOLD & BRIGHT or SOFT & MUTED around the Color Wheel, and named them according to the four seasons. AUTUMN is yellow-based soft & muted. SPRING is yellow-based bold & bright. SUMMER is blue-based soft & muted. WINTER is blue-based bold & bright. His research showed that all colors 'fit' into one of these four basic palettes. Itten's research also led him to observe that peoples' unique personal coloring also aligns them into one of these four color quadrants.
