The Book of Brown Paint Colors

Brown paint colors are viewed as approachable, genuine, and safe – all traits that make brown paint hues great choices for those who want to encourage a home environment where individuals feel comfortable to be themselves. As with the color green, much of our symbolic association with brown comes from its presence in nature. The colors of tree roots, soils, muds, and sands, brown paint colors allow us to feel rooted, stable, practical, and responsible.
