Brown is the Color of Strength

Posted on: September 2, 2011

… and also RELIABILITY (the perfect thing for a cellular shade then!).

Brown is —surprise!—our Color of the Month for September. And look at these great-named colors:

  • Coffee Bean [dark brown, double cell, black out]
  • Pinecone [dark brown, single cell, black out]
  • Reed
  • Operetta [caramel brown, double cell, light filtering]
  • Vienna Wood [wood-toned brown, double cell, light filtering]
  • Tambourine [grey-brown, single cell, light filtering]

Ahhh, and the color of this gorgeous horse – who certainly symbolizes strength, beauty, nature, and (in the good-olde-buggie-days) reliability.

At, readers sent in their reactions to the color BROWN. Marti hit the nail on the head by feeling that the color “oozes security. It symbolizes HOME, contentment and peace and quietness.”

Other discussions bring up the “organic” association and the “most things natural” connotation of the color BROWN.

Brown can also provide a sense of “being down-to-earth”.

So, whether you’re in the market for some lovely shades for your New York Brownstone or your UPS Office or as a special gift for that “Brown-Eyed Girl” – you know where to look, all month long.

Dream Home Decorating has a few hints for Brown-lovers, even including what hues of other colors you find in Brown. They, likewise, bring up the idea of TEXTURE – bringing into the mix thoughts of woollens, woods, terracotta, straw, wicker, stone, ceramics.
