In a 2002 paper published in the The Astrophysical Journal, Johns Hopkins University astronomers, Karl Glazebrook and Ivan Baldry, after analysing light from 200,000 galaxies described the average color of the universe as beige-ish white. It was soon assigned the hex code #FFF8E7 with RGB values (255, 248, 231).
The name of the color was to be decided after a poll. Though "Cappuccino Cosmico" received the highest votes, the scientists finalised Cosmic Latte because latteo means "milky" in Italian, the native language of Galileo, the first modern astronomer!
The complement of Cosmic Latte is Lavender (Web) with the hex code #E7EEFF. Complementary colors are those found at the opposite ends of the color wheel. Thus, as per the RGB system, the best contrast to #FFF8E7 color is offered by #E7EEFF. The complementary color palette is easiest to use and work with. Studies have shown that contrasting color palette is the best way to grab a viewer's attention.
The analogous colors of Cosmic Latte (#FFF8E7) are Cosmic Latte (#FAFFE7) and Linen (#FFECE7). In the RGB color wheel, these two analogous colors occur to the right and left of Cosmic Latte with a 30° separation on either side. An analogous color palette is extremely soothing to the eyes and works wonders if your main color is soft or pastel.
As per the RGB color wheel, the split-complementary colors of Cosmic Latte (#FFF8E7) are #E7FAFF (Bubbles) and #ECE7FF (Lavender (Web)). A split-complementary color palette consists of the main color along with those on either side (30°) of the complementary color. Based on our research, usage of split-complementary palettes is on the rise online, especially in graphics and web sites designs. It may be because it is not as contrasting as the complementary color palette and, hence, results in a combination which is pleasant to the eyes.
Cosmic Latte triadic color palette has three colors each of which is separated by 120° in the RGB wheel. Thus, #E7FFF8 (Bubbles) and #F8E7FF (Magnolia) along with #FFF8E7 create a stunning and beautiful triadic palette with the maximum variation in hue and, therefore, offering the best possible contrast when taken together.
The tetradic palette of Cosmic Latte has four colors - #E7FFF8 (Bubbles), #E7EEFF (Lavender (Web)) and #FFE7EE (Lavender Blush) in addition to the base color (#FFF8E7). A tetradic color palette is complex and, in most cases, should not be used off-the-shelf. We suggest tweaking the colors slightly to achieve desired results.
Cosmic Latte square color palette has #E7FFEC (Honeydew), #E7EEFF (Lavender (Web)) and #FFE7FA (Lavender Blush). Quite like triadic, the hues in a square palette are at the maximum distance from each other, which is 90°. Note: For several colors purposes, a square palette may look much better than the tetrad color palette.
Cosmic Latte Color Rainbow Palette
Our Cosmic Latte rainbow color palette is based on the RGB model and consists of 7 colors, just like the traditional rainbow. You might not see a lot of variation in color, especially if the chosen color is dark or extremely light. However, this can lead interesting rainbow palettes that are faded, soft, pastel or dull.
