Mocha is a medium-brown color. It gives a warm impression that arises from nature. It is darker than a sand color but lighter than a French roast shade.
In decorating, mocha is considered a neutral color that combines well with others. It is commonly found in commercial paints such as those made by the Behr company. For instance, paired with a light oatmeal color, mocha paint goes with lilac, medium green, light gray or brick red. However, when mocha is put together with a light toasted brown paint, the two form an attractive combination with deep purple, forest green, gray-blue or light yellow.
