Cocoa Colour Ideas

Cocoa, Coffee, Mocha or just brown. This colour shade is very popular in autumn, capturing the natural, earthy landscape and incorporating in floral designs. 


The colour stands for solidity, fall and earth. Considered a masculine colour that radiates confidence and reliability. In the flower industry there are not many brown flowers, but more than enough branches to compensate. If you are looking for an unstructed, unusual or autumnal bouquet, incorporating the colour brown is perfectly suited to the design.


When you think of earthy tones, russet or mocha hues, you think of autumn. Brown is a seasonal colour and revolves around the season of autumn. Beautiful seasonal varieties that are best combined with bright, colourful hues.
