Dark orchid

Dark Orchid (#9932CC) is a highly saturated and fairly neutral and balanced shade of purple commonly associated with intense (78.8% match), festive (78.7% match), and dynamic (78.4% match). When Dark Orchid is combined with Gold, it appears bright and innocent. When joined with Pigment Red, the mood becomes more intense. When Dark Orchid is added to Sunglow, it evokes interesting and bright feelings. When paired with its complementary color #66CD32, a warmer and less saturated variant of the shade "Lime Green", it can convey cheerful or striking emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #CD9931 (a shade of "Satin Sheen Gold") and #31CD99 (a shade of "Caribbean green"), the resulting palette becomes harder and warmer than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "dynamic" to the "sophisticated" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a lively and amusing atmosphere.
