Feb 09, 2015 • By Places Real Estate • 0 Comments

Marsala and Friends

Every year the color gurus at Pantone unearth a series of hidden gems of colors and crown one as the “Color of the Year”.  This year the distinguished honor goes to the rich, warm, and soulful Marsala.  Marsala has been matched up with a series of complimentary tones and shades to create a palette for 2015 that is complex and intriguing.

“A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.”

The selection of the number one color is not taken lightly and demands careful consideration.  The Pantone team looks to pop culture, fashion, entertainment, travel destinations, and even the worlds of technology and sports from across the globe to inform their decision and create each year’s palette.  Transversely, the team’s selections will influence the world of color for fashion, design, product development, architecture, and interiors for the year to come.

Here is what Pantone has to say about Marsala for Interiors:

Marsala for Interiors
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 color 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.
