2015 Color of the Year
2015 means not only a new year, but new resolutions, new trends, and of course – a new 2015 color of the year. Releasing it’s ever-so anticipated decision of what color would determine the future fashion and design choices for the upcoming year, Pantone’s Marsala is one that doesn’t disappoint. Earthy, rich, and subtle, Marsala is a sophisticated and sultry color that pops dramatically when paired with neutrals such as warm taupes and greys. It is also highly compatible with warm tones of amber, umber and golden yellows, various shades of turquoise, and vibrant blues because of it’s burnished undertones. We think that the shade is dramatic and hearty, and lends itself well to various textures and finishes, such as matte, gloss, or metallic.
To help with your new year decorating and sprucing, we chose a few of our favorite home products in the marsala family in various patterns, silhouettes, and styles. Is this a trend that you’ll be embracing this year? See below to kick start your year off with a healthy dose of marsala inspiration!
