When a color scheme is inspired by an urban environment, it’s not so much about pulling together different colors as it is combining shades along a continuum of the same color. Urban color schemes, if not on a grayscale, tend to be washed-out.

This description defines the first of two genuinely urban looks: the Urbane and the Post-Apocalyptic Urban Primitive.
