Color of the Week: Sassafras Tea

Not just any brown, Behr Premium Plus Home Decorators Collection in Sassafras Tea is a bohemian hue that is as snappy as its name. Whether used on an accent wall or painted throughout a room, the warm rich tones ground bold and pastel colors, which can be freely incorporated throughout. We love the color paired with powder blues or warm yellows. Now that’s sassy.

coirThe fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer husk of a coconut is called coir. Brown coir comes from ripe coconuts as shown above, and is often used as mulch. White coir, as seen in rope and twine, comes from green (unripe) coconuts.

tourmaline (brown)Tourmaline is a family consisting of more than a dozen minerals of widely varying composition. The complex chemistry of the material results in an enormous range of colors with perhaps more than 100 distinct hues on record.¹Usually, iron-rich tourmalines are black to bluish-black to deep brown, while magnesium-rich varieties are brown to yellow, and lithium-rich tourmalines are almost any color: blue, green, red, yellow, pink, etc. Rarely, it is colorless. Bi-colored and multicolored crystals are common. Some forms of tourmaline are dichroic, in that they change color when viewed from different angles.²
Schorl is another word for tourmaline (specifically, black tourmaline, which is the most common type).³

berries
The phrase “brown as a berry” seems to have originated in Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales,” The Cook’s Tale, line 44:
There lived a ’prentice, once, in our city,And of the craft of victuallers was he;Happy he was as goldfinch in the glade,Brown as a berry, short, and thickly made,With black hair that he combed right prettily.

No one knows what kind of berry he was referring to.
