Acorn

An acorn is the nut or fruit of several different varieties of oak tree, usually found lying around the tree’s base.

Ash Brown

This particular shade of brown may seem like an odd choice for the “ash” name, as it doesn’t look nearly gray enough to resemble the ash from a fire. However, Ash Brown is actually named after the wood of the ash tree, which has a bright reddish brown or reddish green tint to its branches and bark.

Ash Brown
Hex #98623C
RGB 152, 98, 60
CMYK 0, 36, 61, 40

Ash Gray

Related to the previous entry, Ash Gray looks a little bit more like the ash from a fire, but its name is still derived from its resemblance to the bark of the ash tree. In contrast to Ash Brown, however, Ash Gray has a noticeably cooler tint to it, and the end result is a grayish brown.

Ash Gray
Hex #C1B5A9
RGB 193, 181, 169
CMYK 0, 6, 12, 24

Ash White

The last in the “ashen” family of colors, Ash White is closely related to Ash Brown and Ash Gray. Like Ash Gray, this color seems closer to fireplace soot, but the muted red undertones link it to the color of the trees as well as to the white seed pods that the tree often generates.

Ash White
Hex #E9E4D4
RGB 233, 228, 212
CMYK 0, 2, 9, 9

Baked Bread

If you’ve found yourself experimenting with baking recently, then you’re probably already pretty familiar with this particular shade. Baked Bread is a soft golden brown color with a slightly duller overtone. It’s meant to remind viewers of the warmth and comfort that goes hand in hand with pulling a fresh loaf of bread out of the oven.

Baked Bread
Hex #DACBA9
RGB 218, 203, 169
CMYK 0, 7, 22, 15

Baked Potato

Similar to Baked Bread, Baked Potato is another shade of brown that very clearly draws inspiration from a particular food item. Unlike Baked Bread, however, Baked Potato is a slightly darker shade with some earthy undertones. The end result is a color that evokes the crispy outer jacket of a freshly baked potato.

Baked Potato
Hex #B69E87
RGB 182, 158, 135
CMYK 0, 13, 26, 29

Bamboo

When they’re still attached to the root, bamboo stalks can be green, red, or even black in color. However, when most of us think of bamboo, we picture the distinctive pale tan color that bamboo takes on after it has been harvested and dried. It’s that same characteristic color that ultimately gives Bamboo brown its name.

Bamboo
Hex #E3DEC6
RGB 227, 222, 198
CMYK 0, 2, 13, 11

Bark

As we’ve already seen, the bark of a tree can come in a wide range of colors from pale ashen white to a brown so dark that it almost looks black. Bark brown takes the average of all those colors in order to produce a shade that wouldn’t look out of place on any first sketch of a tree.

Bark
Hex #996633
RGB 153, 102, 51
CMYK 0, 33, 67, 40

Beeswax

Often considered to be the first plastic, beeswax has been used by artists, craftsmen, and candle-makers since before written history. It’s technically edible, but it’s most often used in cosmetics or to make other declarative objects. Its pale yellow-brown hue is echoed in the appearance of the appropriately-named Beeswax brown.

Beeswax
Hex #E9D7AB
RGB 233, 215, 171
CMYK 0, 8, 27, 9

Beige Linen

Like beeswax, linen is one of the oldest materials used around the world, with linen cloth samples dating back nearly 30,000 years. While new linen has a crisp, white color, older linen fabric may take on a pale tan or beige color. Beige Linen brown is a reflection of that slightly faded quality.

Beige Linen
Hex #E2DAC6
RGB 226, 218, 198
CMYK 0, 4, 12, 11

Birdseed

If you’ve ever opened up a bag of birdseed in order to hang a feeder in your backyard, you already know that birdseed tends to be a mix of various seeds and nuts and therefore has no single color. However, Birdseed brown calls to mind the sunflower seeds and other light or golden brown seeds found within the mixture.

Birdseed
Hex #E2C28E
RGB 226, 194, 142
CMYK 0, 14, 37, 11

Bitter Chocolate

When we think of chocolate, we tend to think of either the warm brown of milk chocolate or the deep, rich color of dark chocolate. Bitter Chocolate brown straddles the line between the two shades, with all of the brightness of milk chocolate and a slightly cooler undertone to suggest the bitterness of dark chocolate.

Bitter Chocolate
Hex #9E5B40
RGB 158, 91, 64
CMYK 0, 42, 59, 38

Brandy

Brandy may not be as popular today as it was before the rise of Transatlantic trade, but it still reserves a spot in history as a rich, highly concentrated spirit that’s best served warm on a cold night. Brandy brown is a little bit brighter than the dark hue of its liquid namesake, but it captures some of that same wintery warmth and cheer.

Brandy
Hex #DCB68A
RGB 220, 182, 138
CMYK 0, 17, 37, 14

Brown Bear

Found across Europe, Asia, and North America, the brown bear is the largest of any bear species and has long been revered as a powerful hunter and predator. Brown Bear brown captures all of the strength and energy of these animals without nearly as much danger, resulting in a bright red-brown shade.

Brown Bear
Hex #7F6244
RGB 127, 98, 68
CMYK 0, 23, 46, 50

Brown Beige

The wordbeigewas originally derived from the French word for the natural color of a sheep’s wool. As a result, while there’s no one “true” beige, most shades of beige tend to have a yellow or ivory undertone. Brown Beige takes those yellow undertones and combines them with a traditional brown shade for a vibrant overall color.

Brown Beige
Hex #CC8833
RGB 204, 136, 51
CMYK 0, 33, 75, 20

Brown Coffee

If you’re the kind of person who takes their coffee “black”, then this shade is the perfect match for you. Brown Coffee is several shades darker than most “coffee brown” colors, and the end result is a shade of brown that’s a little bit deeper, richer, and more dramatic than its typical counterparts.

Brown Coffee
Hex #4A2C2A
RGB 74, 44, 42
CMYK 0, 41, 43, 71

Brown Gray

Not to be confused with Grayish Brown or even Gray Brown, Brown Gray is a blend of two closely related colors. The main difference between Brown Gray and the other two shades is that Brown Gray is brown first, with only a slightly muted cast as a result of its gray undertones.

Brown Gray
Hex #8D8468
RGB 141, 132, 104
CMYK 0, 6, 26, 45

Brown Metal

In theory, Brown Metal should be similar in color to Brown Rust, which shows up later on this list. In application, however, Brown Metal reflects the pale brown metallic sheen that matches its name a little bit more closely. Some varieties of stainless steel will often take on a gray-brown hue that very closely resembles this shade of brown.

Brown Metal
Hex #BBADA1
RGB 187, 173, 161
CMYK 0, 7, 14, 27

Brown Red

Brown Red manages to straddle the line between brown and red without going too far in either direction. While it certainly has a higher red value than some of the other entries on this list, the yellow and “key” or black values are pushed higher as well to balance out the otherwise aggressive color.

Brown Red
Hex #922B05
RGB 146, 43, 5
CMYK 0, 71, 97, 43

Brown Rust

When compared to Brown Metal, Brown Rust looks a lot more like Brown Red than any other color. Rust is the natural product of a reaction between iron, oxygen, and water, so it’s hardly a surprise that this bright color is one of the most common shades of reddish brown found in multiple places around the world.

Brown Rust
Hex #AF593E
RGB 175, 89, 62
CMYK 0, 49, 65, 31

Brown Stone

When you hear the words “brown stone”, you may picture the classical construction style found in buildings throughout the United States and Northern Europe. When it’s used to describe a color, however, Brown Stone actually refers to the deep, rich shade that can be found in a wide range of rocks and pebbles across the planet.

Brown Stone
Hex #593C39
RGB 89, 60, 57
CMYK 0, 33, 36, 65

Brown Sugar

The main difference between brown sugar and any other type of sugar is due to one main ingredient: molasses. While white or purified sugars are treated and refined until they’re practically colorless, brown sugar retains some of the richer, almost smokier flavor of molasses. This also provides the characteristic color that’s echoed here in Brown Sugar brown.

Brownie

Brownies have been around for more than a hundred years, even if there’s some debate over who the first brownie baker truly was. Today, they’re a popular offering at restaurants, cafes, and at-home parties alike. As a color, Brownie is a dark brown shade with brighter red notes that convey some of the warmth and sweetness of the baked treat.

Brownish Gray

It may sound awfully similar to Brown Gray, butBrownishGray veers more towards the gray side of the spectrum than the brown side. The end result is a calming, neutral shade of gray-brown that’s long been a popular choice for interior decorators and fashion designers alike.

Brownish Gray
Hex #86775F
RGB 134, 119, 95
CMYK 0, 11, 29, 47

Brownish Red

Much like Brownish Gray, Brownish Red is essentially a “pure” color that’s been tinted with some shade of brown to create a new color combination. In this case, a bright, vivid red is muted slightly by the brown undertones, which creates an overall color that looks a little bit earthier or more historic than plain red would have appeared on its own.

Burnt Almond

Depending on the time of year, you may have tried your hand at roasting almonds in your oven or even in a fireplace. Regardless of the weather, roasted almonds can be a hearty, healthy snack, and Burnt Almond reflects the color that the almonds will take on as they sizzle from the heat.

Burnt Henna

Henna is one of the oldest dyes in the world. It has been used since antiquity throughout India, North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Africa to color clothing, dye hair, and create beautifully intricate designs on the skin.

Butter Toast

Today, we mostly consider toast and butter to be an easy breakfast food, but that wasn’t always the case. During the 15th and 16th centuries, toast was used to flavor drinks and then discarded. It wasn’t until more recent times that buttered toast became a staple of breakfast cuisine, and the Butter Toast color pays homage to this relatively new tradition.

Buttercream

As the name might suggest, the main ingredient in buttercream icing is just plain old butter. While buttercream icing can be dyed or tinted to take on just about any color imaginable, its purest form tends to be this pale yellowy brown color as a result of the butter and sugar mixture.

Buttercream
Hex #EFE0CD
RGB 239, 224, 205
CMYK 0, 6, 14, 6

Buttery Brown

Related to the previous entry, it’s no secret that butter tends to have a pale yellow color in its simplest form. Buttery Brown is definitely more brown than yellow, but it carries a hint of that bright, sunshiny color to liven up what would otherwise be nothing more than a pale, muted brown.

Camel

The earliest use of the word “camel” to refer to a specific color appears in 1916. Since then, camel-colored coats, shirts, dresses, and bags have gone in and out of high fashion over the years. Regardless of what you think is “in” at the moment, Camel brown remains a warm shade of brown with a distinctly vintage feel to it.

We’ll look at Maple Sugar and Maple Syrup brown later on, but for now, Canadian Maple pays homage to the brilliant brown-gold color that lights up some parts of the Canadian countryside during the fall. In fact, the maple leaf is so much a part of Canadian culture that it’s earned a spot on the Canadian national flag.

Canvas Brown

Historically, canvas was made of a durable hemp weave that would be able to stand up to the perils of sea travel or long overland voyages. Today, while canvas sails and luggage bags aren’t nearly as common, cotton canvas weaves are a popular choice for clothing as well as for the basis of many great works of art. Canvas Brown mimics the pale brown shade that’s been so enduring for centuries.

Caramel

Regular caramel is basically just sugar that’s been heated and pulled into a confection, and it’s been a staple of worldwide desserts for centuries. Caramel brown captures some of the warmth, sweetness, and richness of the confection that’s here to stay for at least a few centuries more.

Caramel Apple

Caramel apples were first invented by a Mrs. Edna Kastrup, who went on to found The Taffy Apple Company with the rest of her family in 1948. Since then, they’ve become far more widespread, but Caramel Apple brown combines the rich color of caramel with the subtle red undertones of the apple.

Carnal Brown

Carnal Brown is another relatively muted shade that still has some warm red and yellow undertones. It’s often used for cosmetics, especially lipsticks, which may be why it’s earned its “carnal” title as a reflection of its use in lots of different bodily decorations.

Cashmere

Cashmere is a type of wool made specifically from the hair of certain breeds of goat, instead of sheep. It’s long been treasured for its soft, almost silk-like qualities, as well as for its lightweight insulating properties. While cashmere can be dyed into many colors, its “default” color is a light creamy brown, as seen in Cashmere brown’s overall tone.

Chai

Technically speaking,chaiis just the Hindi word fortea.However, a lot of countries around the world use the wordchai to refer tomasala chai,a blend of tea and spices with a sharp, warming flavor that’s often sweetened and mixed with milk. The end result is a drink that looks an awful lot like Chai brown.

Chamomile

Chamomile is actually the name given to several different flowers in the daisy family that grow throughout Europe. For most of us, however, when we hear “chamomile”, we think of tea. Chamomile tea has a soft, golden-brown color that is perfectly reflected in the yellow-red undertones of Chamomile brown.

Chicory

Continuing the plant or beverage trend, chicory is another member of the daisy family. While chicory flowers are white, the roots are often baked, roasted, and ground up for use as a coffee substitute. As a result, it’s hardly surprising that the final product bears a dark brown color that almost perfectly matches the shade of Chicory brown.

Cinnamon Toast

We’ve already looked at buttered toast, so now it’s time to consider cinnamon toast. Cinnamon toast can refer to either toasted bread with cinnamon and other spices baked in or to toast that’s been “dressed up” with cinnamon sugar and butter. Either way, the red-brown shade of the cinnamon blends with the muted brown of the toast to give us what we call Cinnamon Toast brown.

Citrus Brown

Citrus Brown may seem like a confusing moniker at first, since most citrus fruits tend to be famously yellow or orange. Citrus Brown combines all the warmth and energy of those shades with the more subdued neutrality of a classic brown. The end result is a brown-gold hue that provides the best of both worlds.

Cotton

Cotton fibers have been used to make a soft, woolly cloth for literally thousands of years, with the earliest cloth samples dating back to nearly five thousand years before the Common Era. While the plant and its produce have a long and often gruesome history, the cloth itself has long been valued for its soft and crisp white color. Cotton brown captures the soft brown glow of that same worn and well-used fabric.

Croissant

No matter how you pronounce it, there’s no denying that the humble croissant has long held its spot as one of the most popular pastries around the world. Originally developed in Austria, croissants are known for their flaky layers and buttery texture, and while Croissant brown can’t quite capture that same feeling, it can at least convey some of the golden brown color.

Dark Beige

Plain or “true” beige is infamously difficult to print due to the extremely pale saturation values that make it hard to reproduce on a digital scale. Dark Beige, on the other hand, keeps the same color ratios but dials up the intensity to create a color that’s far more manageable in the digital realm.

Dark Chestnut

Chestnuts have been a staple in many culinary cultures around the world, treasured for their sweet, hearty taste and relatively large size as compared to most other tree nuts.

Dark Khaki

Beloved by military personnel and white collar workers around the world, khaki typically refers to a pale brown shade of cloth with a subtle yellow undertone. Dark Khaki dials up the yellow undertone until it produces what almost passes for a green tint, and the end result is a significantly darker shade of brown.

Dark Sand

Like many of the other examples on this list, “sand” can be used to sum up a wide range of colors, which makes it a perfect fit for an equally wide range of brown shades or tints. Dark Sand, however, is roughly the color of the sand on the beach after the waves have receded, leaving the beach behind darkened by the water.

Dark Wood

Dark Wood is actually very similar in appearance to Dark Sand, but the difference between the two lies in the concentration of its red, green, and blue values. Dark Sand has a higher level of red, green, and blue in order to reflect its rocky nature, while Dark Wood has a more muted, subdued appearance.

Deep Brown

Deep Brown is one of the darkest shades of brown on this list, which means that it also has some of the lowest red, green, and blue values. As a result, the lack of light or color saturation means that the resulting color is almost dark enough to pass for true black.

Deep Taupe

Taupe takes its name from the French word formole,as it was believed that the gray-brown color was similar in shade to the coat of the little digging animal. However, Deep Taupe comes far closer to the mole’s fur than “true” taupe, as most moles tend to look either dark brown or black.

Desert Gray

Despite not having the word “brown” anywhere in its name, Desert Gray is very visibly closer to brown than it is to a true gray color. Either way, the muted brown has a distinctly cooler undertone to it, and the overall color suggests the coolness of the desert before the sun begins to rise.

Once it’s been cut away from its clump and dried, however, it takes on a pale yellow-brown color and can be used as a fire starter or a quick and easy source of fuel.

Gray Brown is a deep shade of brown that looks pretty much exactly the way that you would expect it to look. Unlike some of the other gray-brown blends that we’ve seen on this list, however, Gray Brown is primarily brown with a gray undertone.

Grayish Brown

The last entry in our family of similarly-named shades of brown, Grayish Brown is very similar in color to Gray Brown. The only real difference between the two of them is that Grayish Brown is slightly darker. This difference in saturation is the result of a slightly lower red, green, and blue value that pushes the shade away from the lighter or brighter side of the color spectrum.
