Pantone Color Of The Year- What Do You Think?

Pantone Color of the Year 2015-Marsala…Yay or Nay?

“Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness,” Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in the company press release.PantoneMarsala1

“This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”

Every year, twice a year, Pantone hosts a secret meeting of representatives from various nations’ color standards groups. After two days of presentations and debate, they choose a color for the following year to be the Pantone Color of the Year. This color is then featured with multiple palettes for all seasons, in all design markets. From fashion to graphic to interior design, Marsala will be finding its way into all of them.

You may love it or hate it,  but Marsala will be an easier color to work with than last year’s Radiant PantoneMarsala2Orchid. With its red-brown deep tone, it is warm and inviting and gives a richness to the space. Whether you use it as an accent to other colors or use it to establish a strong statement, it will give an elegant feel to your room.
