Original Post

I have jus listed my new tote:
www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=31979100

and as always I find it tricky to name the colours. Is CREAM too light, BEIGE too dark for this kind of natural linen colour, does such thing as cream beige even exist, and what about hazelnut brown - does it exist only in eye colour or can you name a textile as well?
What colours come to your mind when you see these descriptions and do they match the ones on the pictures?

Thanks for your help.

nice tote! you names seem fine to me.

except i'd say "dark grey" and "cream." beige doesn't do much for me.

coffee and cream, it looks like a black and tan sundae, coffee vanilla chocolate, i think i'm in the mood for ice cream :)

how about..."natural beige", "charcoal gray", and earthy brown? colors can be hard to see through the screen! nice bag though!

oh, yes, charcoal gray, tan, I forgot about those, and earthy brown sounds about right as well.

thank you, everyone!

Okay, this might be weird, but when I saw it my first thought was a chocolate bag! Yummy! Dark chocolate, white chocolate and milk chocolate. :)

Then, instead of red...cherry! (chocolate covered cherries?)
