Like the wine, Marsala is sensual, deliciously scented, bold and has a very rich decided flavor. It comes from Sicily, an Italian island always embraced by a hot shining sun. As a color, Marsala embodies all these characteristics and possibly more. It is a very versatile hue, both earthly and sophisticated, vibrant yet under-toned, emotional, spicy and elegant.
A perfect choice for your home décor!
According to the Pantone Color Institute Pantone color 18-1438 also known as Marsala will be the color to dictate all trends in 2015.
Marsala is not only appealing to fashion designers, but also to home furniture design. In fact, according to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, this earthly tint is perfect to give warmth to ambients and details as well as textures and fabrics. You may very well have a beautifully designed home décor with this color. According to her Marsala could be the perfect color to add in a home décor as it “enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability”.
Marsala is not only the color of the year, his nostalgic brown undertones recall the atmosphere of the 70s, mixing modernity with a more classic spirit that perfectly applies to house details and decorations and complements modern décor schemes in any home.
It is a color that appeals to the senses very quickly and easily. It can be used for beauty products, fashion outfits and home décor equally and it also works on both genders. It is thanks to this versatility that Marsala is so perfect in all types of ambients and will be successfully displayed in many house interiors in the coming months.
The raw, rustic yet sophisticated nature of Marsala will definitely make the color popular and long lasting far beyond 2015. According to Leatrice Eiseman it is the perfect color to be layered with metallic/bronzy colors, but also with more unpredictable tones such as greens and blues and even oranges.
We are very curious to see how the creative world will exploit its many facets, characteristics and edges and how it will be harmonized in all types of designer and décor dimensions.
