Lavender earned its name from the flower, and its hue is a mixture of red and blue in their palest shades. The hex code for lavender is #E6E6FA.

Purple, a mixture of red and blue, has been a symbol of royalty and wealth for millennia. In fact, the dye originally used to make purple was so rare and so expensive that only royalty could afford it. Lavender, though a lighter and more gentle color than purple, still creates the same sense of respect. Considered the floral symbol of love at first sight, lavender lends a softness when used in tandem with other colors.

You can combine it with other shades of purple like eggplant and amethyst or colors you see in nature like greens and blues.
