The word crimson was originally used to describe the color of Kermes dye, a substance derived from the tiny insect Kermes vermilio. It is said to be the color of love and affection, and of course, it is also the color of Harvard and its infamous daily student newspaper, The Harvard Crimson. If you’re looking to develop a color palette using crimson, consider looking to Victorian colors like deep bronze, maroons, or greens for an elegant and vintage look. For a more modern palette, combine crimson with pinks and greens or with neutrals like sand dollar and beige.
