Charcoal (#36454F) is a somewhat saturated and cool shade of blue commonly associated with steady (81.8% match), mature (80.5% match), and dignified (78.2% match). When Charcoal is combined with Davy's gray, it appears dignified and placid. When joined with Pale Silver, the mood becomes more urban. When Charcoal is added to Ebony, it evokes earnest and metallic feelings. When paired with its complementary color #4F4036, a lighter, warmer, and more saturated variant of the shade "Dark Lava", it can convey traditional or earnest emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #4E3544 (a shade of "Eggplant") and #444E35 (a shade of "Rifle Green"), the resulting palette becomes harder and 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 reasonable and thorough atmosphere.
