Crimson was initially used to describe the shade of dye, a substance from the small Kermes vermilio insect. The color of love, warmth, energy and affection, the color Crimson's striking and vivid personality is derived from its inherently high visibility.
Consider using Crimson alongside Victorian colors such as maroons or greens for a timeless and vintage look. You can also combine Crimson with pinks and neutrals for a more modern and restrained palette. To add more boldness to your design, consider pairing Crimson with cool blue toned hues.
