Le Corbusier’s aesthetic characterizes even his most straightforward color concepts. They express his deep sense of respect for the harmonious color compositions in nature. He combined the gray on which Whisper gray is based with a deep burnt umber and an opaque gray-blue in the Villa La Roche in Paris. Color triads such as this one, which follow a general pattern of “achromatic light color + achromatic dark color + chromatic color,” are common in nature. Applied to architecture, these triads look classic and natural.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
