Plum (#DDA0DD) is a somewhat saturated shade of magenta commonly associated with brilliant (83.4% match), pretty (77.6% match), and charming (77.0% match). When Plum is combined with Pastel pink, it appears feminine and sublime. When joined with Cosmic Latte, the mood becomes more pretty. When Plum is added to Mauve, it evokes brilliant and calm feelings. When paired with its complementary color #A1DDA1, a darker, cooler, and more saturated variant of the shade "Grape Green", it can convey lively or happy emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #DDDDA1 (a shade of "Pale Goldenrod") and #A1DDDD (a shade of "Powder Blue"), the resulting palette becomes harder and warmer than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "casual" to the "natural" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a light and childlike atmosphere.
