Lion (#DECC9C) is a somewhat saturated and warm shade of orange commonly associated with modest (91.5% match), dry (89.7% match), and nostalgic (87.7% match). When Lion is combined with Sage Green, it appears dry and subtle. When joined with Dim Gray, the mood becomes more traditional. When Lion is added to Medium Taupe, it evokes traditional and composed feelings. When paired with its complementary color #9CADDE, a darker, cooler, and more saturated variant of the shade "Maximum Blue Purple", it can convey plain or pretty emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #9BDDCC (a shade of "Middle Blue Green") and #CC9BDD (a shade of "Wisteria"), 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 childlike and light atmosphere.
