brown

Reliable. Wholesome. Organic.

Many men list brown as their favorite color. Most often associated with reliability, stability and friendship, it's a masculine, natural, organic color that conveys wholesomeness. Lighter browns imply genuineness, while darker tones mimic wood and leather. Brown paired with green can create a very earthy atmosphere, while brown paired with a yellow-gold or orange can make a space feel warm and inviting. Deep purple or gray mixed with brown will produce a conservative, yet comfortable, environment.
