Pantone Colour of the Year 2015 – Marsala

Pantone have come out with the colour of the year, Marsala.
Masala has a nice hue and does capture the sophisicated subdue feel of culture currently. What do you think of the hue? Do you think it’s the right colour? What about the past predictions from Pantone?


The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors.

“Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.

Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.

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.

A Hearty Yet Stylish Tone
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.

This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.
