A Closer Look: Wally Eco Espresso & Charcoal
From time to time, we get questions on the key differences between the Wally Eco colors of Charcoal and Espresso. On a base level, one is brown and the other is grey; however, when planted up and in different lighting, it’s not that simple - they can look remarkably similar. Not to worry - we’re here to break down these two colors for you and shed some light on their differences in order to help you pick your perfect color!
Our Espresso color is a very dark brown, which in low lighting can even look black! With that said, in direct light you can see the luscious rich brown come through in this planter. This shade is very much an earthy tone which is perfect to achieve a full, flush look with your plants, keeping the attention on the leaves and not the planter. You can pull this look off on any color of wall because it camouflages well with shadows, adds depth and is overall a very versatile shade.
This elegant dark grey can also appear to be different shades in certain lighting. In direct light the grey is more apparent, but in other lighting conditions the blue undertones can either appear to be either a warmer or cooler tone. This will not camouflage as well as the Espresso on a flush wall; but if you want a little color popping through or you want more of a statement piece to blend in with like colors, Charcoal is a great choice.
Both Espresso and Charcoal are our darker, neutral colors of Wally Eco, and both happen to be best sellers, so how can you go wrong? Hey, your plants won't know the difference either way.
Now, let’s see them both in action!
