2015 Colour of the Year – Marsala

Get a head Start on the latest Colour of the year released by Pantone. It’s called Marsala. It’s a more earthy tone and less flamboyant than last year’s Radiant Orchid seen on royalty mostly. Colour is the catalyst that can spark the sale, define the space and create the magic and the mood. When buying any product to wear on your skin tone, knowing what colours to use is critical to you looking your best. PANTONE offers a variety of trend forecasts for every design market giving you inspiration to make the right colour choices seasons ahead of their time.

“Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth”. Leatrice Eiseman Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute.

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

“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.

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.


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

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.
