Mauve is a light shade that lies between violet and pink in the colored wheel. The name Mauve is derived from the French word "malva" referring to the mallow flower. Mauve gives off feelings of romance, sentimentality, youth, and nostalgia.
The color mauve works well with different shades of purple, and it also makes lime green pop. In addition, it tones down its complimentary color, yellow, and creates great combinations with a variety of pink shades. For a cooler toned design, try pairing Mauve with grey.
