There are 6 Tonal color families - LIGHT, DEEP, WARM, COOL, BRIGHT and MUTED.
That's just the way we describe colors - they are called color characteristics.
Each of these color families have the primary characteristic in common.
For example, the LIGHT color family is a group of all the Light colors.
The WARM color family is a group of all the Warm colors and so on.
Each Color Family has a full spectrum of colors - Red, blue, green, yellow, purple, grey etc.
So no-one need ever say "I can't wear green" because, whatever your color direction, there is a shade of green that will suit you!
You can have 2 or even 3 of these color characteristics present in their natural coloring.
An Online Color Analysis goes into some depth so your own color direction is quite individual. I don't believe it's a good idea to limit yourself to too few colors otherwise it's frustrating and limiting.
The Seasons are what I call 'complex' color families, they are a specific combination of the Tonal color characteristics - beautiful color palettes if you fit the specifics.
