Celeste (#B2FFFF) is a somewhat saturated and cool shade of cyan commonly associated with tropical (87.1% match), refreshing (80.9% match), and young (80.7% match). When Celeste is combined with Steel Blue, it appears refreshing and young. When joined with Kelly Green, the mood becomes more light. When Celeste is added to Ghost White, it evokes clear and refreshing feelings. When paired with its complementary color #FFB2B2, a darker, warmer, and less saturated variant of the shade "Light Pink", it can convey pretty or light emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #FFB2FF (a shade of "Electric Lavender") and #FFFFB2 (a shade of "Lemon Yellow"), the resulting palette becomes cooler than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "casual" to the "elegant" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a happy and childlike atmosphere.
