To describe light and dark hues of colors in Indonesian, these two words can be used:

Muda, meaning "light", and
Gelap, meaning "dark" or "deep"

For instance, to describe the color "light blue", you'd say biru muda. To describe the color "dark blue", you'd say biru tua.

Describing Colors and Objects

The simplest way to express a colored object is to add the color adjective behind the object. Here are some examples:

  • A green book → Buku hijau
  • A black wall → Dinding hitam
  • Two yellow tables → Dua meja kuning
  • Five red shirts → Lima baju merah
