Marsala, a rich, sophisticated hue invading the industry, was elegantly named 2015's Color of the Year by the international royalty of the Pantone Color Institute.
This modern shade, inspired by the robust wine of the same name, is an exquisite, yet earthy red-brown that offers a grounding warmth to any area of design. It mixes expertly well with golden shades like amber, yellow, umber, copper, and other trendy metallics to boast the classic tones of the autumn season.
However, being known for its natural versatility, it actually serves as an ideal accessory to any color. It's dramatic qualities make it dynamic against neutrals like black, ivory, tans, and grays, but its full-bodied vibrancy also allows it to stand solo.
Marsala doesn't stop there. This stylish hue offers a classy experiment with complementary colors such as sea blues, turquoise, and forest greens. The shade captivates both men and women with its rustic charm open for creative interpretation and its solid, yet subtle luxuriousness.
As fashion and design continue to center around texture, Marsala becomes even more fundamental for a trendy, but hearty look. This tone can enhance a desirably plush atmosphere, while its sultry undertones complement a sheen or leather look just as well. It possesses immeasurable adaptability against any textile for a layered, cozy look.
Marsala is a staple for interior design this season, craving attention as an accent piece, accessory, feature artwork, or enhancement to festive decor. It can be used to paint full rooms, a single accent wall, or as pieces of emphasis such as pillows, rugs, place settings, or throws to offer a comfortable elegance.
Take advantage of the hottest color the season by adorning your home with Marsala for an organic, glamorous appeal.
