Brown is a color that can be created by mixing all the other colors together. Brown is one of the most neural and natural colors. It can be found almost everywhere in nature so it is often labeled as an “earthy” color. Along with green, brown is the color that is most representative of the earth. Tree trunks are brown as is mud, some rocks and many kinds of plants and animals like owls and otters.

Brown is also associated with chocolate which is one of the most delicious desserts on earth! In fact, the American chocolate company “Hershey’s” uses a rich brown shade as its trademark company color. Many people love chocolate cake and ice cream and so brown is automatically associated with these desserts too.

In America, the dinner holiday called Thanksgiving is represented by the colors brown and orange. The Japanese do not have a specific word for brown. Instead they use more descriptive names such as “tea-color,” “fox-color,” and “fallen-leaf” to describe the shade. In India, brown is the color of mourning because it resembles dying leaves.

Although brown is sometimes linked to death and decay, it is also a color of refinement and comfort. Lots of people buy brown couches and furniture because the color looks inviting and cozy…even most teddy bears are brown!
