How would you refer to a color of a standard brown carton box?
I mean, a one, that we normally use day to day for moving or storing stuff, etc.
Is it brown or yellow? Dark-yellow or light-brown?
Hmmm... I doubt it.
The cartons may be indeed darker or lighter colored, but I wonder if there is any unique term in English, generically (and definitely) stating it's color.
It is not about just color names, but about the color of a carton.
I noticed that almost all answers below offer just the name of the color. Asking the question I was looking for a fixed expression to distunguish between these light-brown cartons and the white ones.
Here's my case: I have a bunch tiny stuff and what to distribute it among cartons of different form-factors, colors and shades. Then I want to document all storage objects into a database. I need to print out descriptive labels to stick to each storage object. For example, white cartons can be easily labeled as "White carton #5". So I need a similar universal fixed expression to distinguish cardbox-plain-brown cartons. The shades do not really matter - just a fixed expression please. If you say: "Hey dude, don't waste our time, just label'em as brown" - so be it!
