Chocolate Color

HEX color code is #7B3F00 and the RGB is 123, 63, 0

The color chocolate should receive the same acclaim that the candy does, which is why when celebrities like Riz Ahmed wear a slightly oversized suit in a classic but trendy shade like Chocolate, tongues start wagging. Chocolate might just be the most underrated color under the rainbow.

How the color is made: Pure Orange and Black

History: Historically, Chocolate was a color most notably associated with the deep cacao drink that was ingested as medicine and during tribal rituals of the Olmec people.

Color in Action

Chocolate looks wonderful as day wear whether in a pair of chinos or a cute mini shirt with silver button detail. But to really see Chocolate shine stitch it into a silk and chiffon masterpiece, like the Giambattista Valli gown that Zendaya wore to the 2018 Oscars.
Chocolate lampshades, vases, plant pots, and countertops are just a few of the ways this dark color can be incorporated into a home. For real drama why not paint the inside of an archway in a hall to create an enigmatic passage from one room to another?

Colors that go with Chocolate

Take a leaf out of the famous chocolatier’s book and match Chocolate with Red for passion like Nestle, Gold for decadence like Ferrero Roche, or Purple for regalia like Cadbury. Chocolate, Orange, white, and Bright Blue are colors that children will respond to because of their contrast.

Chocolate Color Palettes and Schemes

Chocolate colors pair well with Gold and Cream because of their neutrality and warmth. When using Chocolate as a foundation color, like in flooring, it is a good idea to use colors that fall on the cool spectrum and that are much lighter tints.
