Yesterday Pantone, the authority on global colour, announced that its Colour of the Year for 2015 is PANTONE® 18-1438 Marsala, a naturally robust and earthy wine red.
Complex and full-bodied without overpowering, Marsala provides a unifying element for interior spaces. Add elegance to any room by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces, accessories and paint. Marsala’s plush characteristics are enhanced when the colour is applied to textured surfaces, making it an ideal choice for rugs and upholstered living room furniture.
Nurturing and fulfilling, Marsala is a natural fit for the kitchen and dining room – making it ideal for tabletop, small appliances and linens throughout the home. The hue will be especially prominent in striping and floral patterns found in printed placemats, dinnerware, bedding and throws.
So what do you think of Pantone's colour of the year? Are you loving this wintery tone?
