It’s that time of year again, and Pantone has announced its colour of the year for 2015 as Marsala, “a naturally robust and earthy red”.
According to Pantone Colour Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman, “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while it’s grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”
“This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”
I must admit it’s more of a shade I associate with lipstick as opposed to a colour I would instinctively use in a design, but I’m keen to give it a go!
