Day 231~366

The colour brown is a serious, down-to-earth colour signifying stability, structure and support.

Relating to the protection and support of the family unit, with a keen sense of duty and responsibility, brown takes its obligations seriously. It encourages a strong need for security and a sense of belonging, with family and friends being of utmost importance.

In the meaning of colours, brown is the colour of material security and the accumulation of material possessions.

The colour brown relates to quality in everything – a comfortable home, the best food and drink and loyal companionship. It is a colour of physical comfort, simplicity and quality. Especially if you’re a cat.

From a negative perspective it can also give the impression of cheapness and stinginess in certain circumstances.

Brown is friendly and approachable. It is loyal, trustworthy and dependable in a practical and realistic way.

In colour psychology, brown is honest, genuine and sincere. It relates to the hardworking, the industrious and reliable, with both feet planted firmly on the ground. Unless you’re a cat 🙂





  1. I always associate brown with the late 1970s. Although I have a brown dog, it’s not a colour that I ever really liked.
    Best wishes, Pete

    1. I guess not many people would choose it as a favourite, but I like it in conjunction with other shades and with Autumn colours. Cheers Pete.:)


  2. I like brown. Brown comes after Black and then blue as my preferred colours.
    After looking at your pictures I just had to change your words. Please excuse me but I just had to.
    “The protection and support of the family unit, with a keen sense of duty and responsibility”, (surely must be a) “brown” (cat)
