Have you seen what the Pantone Color of The Year for 2015 is yet? It’s a gorgeous deep red wine shade called Marsala, and I absolutely love it. You can read all about the Pantone pick here, and learn see tons more photos of the stunning shade.
This colour is so rich and beautiful and I can see it fitting perfectly in style for all kinds of things. I can picture a pretty lipstick, nail polish, satin curtains, accent wall, and so much more. Marsala is a statement shade that will work in fashion, beauty, and home decor.
“This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.” Leatrice Eiseman,Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute®
It’s described on the Pantone website as an elegant and rich hue, with a sophisticated natural earthiness. I know it’s just a colour but I really do believe all those sentiments. Looking at the photo story on the Pantone website it shows Marsala in so many ways, including clothing, food, and kitchen decor. I see the warmth and elegance in the photos and I am definitely convinced that this was the right pick for Color of The year for 2015.
I have never before been so excited about a Pantone pick. In previous years I like the colours but couldn’t see myself wearing or using them in any way, but with Marsala I am already digging through my lipstick drawer to find my best Marsala matches!
I’m definitely excited about the Color of The Year for 2015, but how do you feel? Are you a fan of this new hue? Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
