Pantone has decided that Marsala will be the color for 2015

Pantone Color Institute’s 2015 Color of Year is a shade called Marsala. Moving on from last year’s choice of Radiant Orchid, it is time for you to spice up your home with the versatile Marsala.

Annually, the institute decides on a top shade, prompting industries from fashion, beauty, housewares, home furnishings, industrial design and interiors to consider using the color.

Named after the wine, Marsala is an attractive color that is rich, sophisticated and stylish. The shade goes effectively with a variety of other colors and can enhance a new flair to any room in your house.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute, said, “Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us into its embracing warmth.”

Eiseman’s words are exactly why we love this deep wine shade. Amp up a neutral-toned room with some Marsala pillows or curtains. A dining room table will immediately become new again with some new tablecloths and accessories in this sophisticated shade. If you are looking to take your home to the next level, give your entire living room a makeover with a Marsala couch. It will add a full new twist to your space and you will definitely get plenty of compliments. No matter how you incorporate it, this color will complement a cozy, inviting feel that is sure to turn out your house into a home.
