Pantone, the world renowned authority on color institution, has announced the “Color of the Year 2015” – it’s Marsala. In Pantone‘s words it’s “chocolate with an earthy red wine”. Pantone says it would be elegant to use it on its own or with other colors, as a strong accent. It’s a warm and a “seductive shade”, again in their words.
Pantone didn’t spare words when describing Marsala. It says it sends us to think of fulfilling meals, very earthy and that it is a “tasteful hue, very stylish”, good for rugs and small appliances for the kitchen.
It’s a hearty tone, flattering and versatile, that translates easily to fashion, beauty and interior design. Indeed, it’s a beautiful shade and we can – and will 🙂 – wear a lot, being it lipsticks, shoes, clothes, nail polishes… and, as they said, also for interior decoration. It’s a burgundy with an undertone of brown, like the name Marsala suggests, the wine. It will certainly be the apple of the eye of many collections! Do you like it?
