Color Inspiration: Mauve

Mauve Listeni/ˈmv/[2] (rhymes with "grove"; from the French form of Malva "mallow") is a pale lavender-lilac color, one of many in the range of purples. Mauve is named after the mallow flower. Another name for the color is mallow[3] with the first recorded use of mallow as a color name in English in 1611.[4]
Mauve is more grey and more blue than a pale tint of magenta would be. Many pale wildflowers called "blue" are actually mauve. Sometimes mauve can be considered a purplish pink or a pale purple. Mauve can also be described as pale violet.
