Puce is an earthy, pale pink that comes from mixing purple, pink, white and brown. Its name comes from the French word for flea. The color is said to be the color of bloodstains on linen or bedsheets, even after being laundered, from a flea's droppings, or after a flea has been crushed. Puce is frequently used a neutral base in modern interior decors.

Puce works well to emphasize the vividness of bold colors like yellow, orange, and lime green. Puce also complements earthy browns, whites or deep greens to create contemporary palettes.

Puce hex code: #CC8899.
