Tan (#D2B48C) is a somewhat saturated and warm shade of orange commonly associated with mild (88.8% match), elegant (88.5% match), and dry (88.3% match). When Tan is combined with Medium Taupe, it appears classic and sleek. When joined with Pastel Gray, the mood becomes more modest. When Tan is added to Davy's gray, it evokes traditional and modest feelings. When paired with its complementary color #8DABD3, a darker, warmer, and less saturated variant of the shade "Aero", it can convey emotional or tranquil emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #8DD2B4 (a shade of "Turquoise Green") and #B48DD2 (a shade of "Bright Lavender"), the resulting palette becomes softer 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 light and healthy atmosphere.
