Decorating With Marsala: 2015 Color of the Year Courtney Hayes December 4, 2014 ART, DECOR, POPULAR Drumroll, please! The 2015 Pantone® Color of the Year is Marsala, an earthy copper-pink tone we’ll be seeing a lot more of as the New Year rolls around. Named after a wine that shares the same name, Marsala is intentioned to incorporate “the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness,” according to Pantone. Some designers, including Daniel Silverstain and Herve Leger, are already using Marsala in their spring and summer fashion color palletes. But we’re expecting to see a lot more of Marsala, and not just in fashion. Mixture by Sydney Edmunds via Great BIG Canvas The great thing about this color is that it’s muted enough to be considered a neutral, meaning there’s no need to throw out everything in your home or wardrobe in order to bring Marsala in. PANTONE® lists a couple of complimentary colors—including Glacier Gray, a pale blue-gray, and Aquamarine, a bold sky blue—but we think it’d go well with just about anything. Pair it with the Radiant Orchid, the 2014 Color of the Year, for a grown up but still playful color scheme. Or use it with another neutral, like black, white, or navy, for a timeless look that’ll never get old.
