The HIGHS of BROWN: Like the dirt, outdoors, and agriculture with which it is frequently associated, brown is a down-to-earth, hardworking, dependable and wholesome color. It’s friendly, loyal, sensitive, mature and sensual. Creates a sense of comfort and safety that lends itself to the confident contemplation of our problems. It’s also dependable and pretty practical in terms of hiding dirt, which makes it the “keep calm and carry on” of the color wheel.
The MEH of BROWN: One of the least preferred colors in the western world, we’re going to point to brown’s ability to also feel a little duty-bound, dull, lacking in spontaneity, overly responsible, frugal and even stingy. It can be sad, lonely, stark, and depressing. Definitely not what you’d call a color with a sense of humor. So, if you’re looking for laugh, look further up the color wheel.
RANDOM FACT: In some cultures, seeing a brown butterfly means good news or a fresh start! So, go for a walk!
