2015 Color of the Year: Marsala!

We’re ending our Color of the Month challenge in style this December with Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year: Marsala! The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors.

Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute®, had this to say about vibrant Marsala: “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

With its inviting warm tones and universal appeal, Marsala is an easily accessible color that has been popping up everywhere this year, from fabrics and cosmetics to accessories and home decor and everywhere in between!
