Bistre (#3D2B1F) is a somewhat saturated and warm shade of orange commonly associated with mature (78.7% match), dapper (78.0% match), and practical (77.5% match). When Bistre is combined with Dark Sienna, it appears calm and traditional. When joined with Dark Purple, the mood becomes more rich. When Bistre is added to Space Cadet, it evokes substantial and elaborate feelings. When paired with its complementary color #1F313D, a darker, warmer, and more saturated variant of the shade "Gunmetal", it can convey earnest or reasonable emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #1E3D2A (a shade of "Phthalo Green") and #2A1E3D (a shade of "Russian Violet"), the resulting palette becomes harder and warmer than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "casual" to the "elegant" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a majestic and elaborate atmosphere.
