Brown is an arbitrary color classification consisting of dark and/or desaturated color variations of red, orange, and yellow (mostly orange).

It, like many of the colors, can tie into multiple aesthetics.

Brown is often associated with nature, dirt and the earth. The colour can symbolize many positive feelings, for instance:

  • Nurturing

  • Reliability
  • Dependability
  • Resilience
  • Security
  • Safety
  • Warmth
  • Comfort
  • Honesty

  • Loneliness
  • Sadness
  • Emptiness
  • Stark
  • Vast
  • Isolation
  • Cheapness
  • Stinginess
  • Dullness
