Some colors work better together. Here, you'll find color harmonies and schemes specific to the hex color #ccccde. These color palettes have been mathematically proven to pair well in designs.
 

Complimentary

The Complimentary color scheme is made up of two colors. These two colors are opposite one another in the color spectrum. The first color is called the "base" #ccccde and the second color is called the "compliment" #dedecc.

Design Tip: It's not a good idea to use one of these colors for text and the other for the background.

#dedecc
#ccccde

Split Complimentary

The Split Complimentary color scheme is made up of three colors. The base color #ccccde is paired with the two colors to the left and the right of compliment color #dedecc.

Design Tip: The Split Complimentary color scheme offers most of the contrast of the Complimentary Color scheme but without being as intense.

Analagous
