If you’ve been searching for Brown symbolism and meaning on the Internet, chances are you’ve found that there’s very little info out there and all the descriptions are pretty much the same.
That’s because people too easily dismiss the color Brown as a little “boring”. To describe Brown’s meaning and symbolism, they use words like “serviceable”, “steady”, and, “no-nonsense”.
True, they also use words like “warm”, “down-to-earth”, and “wholesome” but how do those words compare to the descriptions of the more “popular” colors?
While colors like Red, Black, White, & Blue seem to have more “sizzle”, the color Brown is, in our opinion, one of the most important and meaningful colors in the spectrum.
Brown is an earth tone, right?
As an earth tone Brown symbolizes nature. From nature we are gifted all that sustains life. Simple yet powerful words that are connected to the color Brown.
Brown is one of the most predominant colors associated with fall. This is the season of harvest and abundance. It’s the time of year we celebrate nature’s gifts and offer thanks for the diverse eco-system that allows us to flourish.
It’s no small wonder that in color psychology, Brown is associated with feelings of warmth and homecoming. After all, no matter if we live in apartments, houses, or even a houseboat, if all these were stripped away we still have earth – our true home.
Brown symbolism and meaning is often referred to as “conventional”. To some, this could seem restrictive and a bit, well, ‘meh’.
But nature is conventional, and look at the indescribable beauty to be found there.
Convention in nature really means that every day living things “live” the best way they can. Animals, vegetables, and minerals follow the time-tested way of “doing things” and seem to do just fine.
When it’s time to evolve and become better, faster, stronger – they simply “do”.
