A Brown Study




To say some one is in a ''brown study'' usually means they are brooding or contemplative.
This my be because the color brown is a serious, down-to-earth color signifying stability, structure and support.
Once again my research is thanks to www.empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com
Brown takes it's obligations seriously. Brown represents material security.
The color brown relates to quality in everything - a comfortable home, the best food and drink and loyal companionship. It is a color of physical comfort, simplicity and quality. 
Brown is friendly and approachable. It is loyal, trustworthy and dependable in a practical and realistic way.
Brown is generally honest, genuine and sincere. They are probably  the hardworking, the industrious and reliable, with both feet planted firmly on the ground that you know.
It is sensual, sensitive and warm, engulfing one in a feeling of calmness and comfort.
It is a practical and sensible color which implies common sense. It hides the dirt!
The color brown is associated with wholesome, natural and organic produce and anything related to the great outdoors, agriculture and farming.
Brown is a frugal color - it is not associated with frivolity, excess or waste in any form. and though it is materialistic, it values quality above all else, and everything in moderation.
Some browns can show a degree of sophistication or elegance, depending on other colors associated with the brown. For example, brown with a soft white or ivory can appear stylish and classy, although more casual than black with soft white or ivory.
Brown suppresses the emotions, creating a safe haven from the stresses of the outside world within which problems can be contemplated and solved.
It is a color of structure, but not perfectionism perfectionism - rather it is orderly and organized.
The color brown gives reassurance. It is quietly confident but never the life of the party! Brown people do not seek attention -but prefer to stay in the background, allowing other colors around it to shine.
Brown is solid with strength and maturity. It prefers to function in its own safe little world - it is not carefree and spontaneous and doesn't like surprises. It can be considered dull, boring and unexciting by many. In fact it is one of the least preferred colors in the western world, along with orange and yellow.
Brown is a predominant color on the planet, along with green. Brown is comforting and stabilizing, while green is balancing and rejuvenating, just what we all need to help us deal with the stresses of modern life.
The psychological meaning of the color brown can vary slightly depending on the colors which are mixed together to create the brown. Brown can be a combination of black, yellow, orange, red, gray, green, blue, pink and purple, and each of the colors in it will add a variation to the meaning.
