Pantone is a corporation which dictates the standard language for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer worldwide.
Traditionally Pantone determines one color for the upcoming year that they believe will trend in graphics, fashion, and home decor. The 2015 color of the year was recently announced to be (drum roll), ‘Marsala’.
Marsala is a rich color full of warmth and passion. This bold color carries an air of elegance, sophistication, and drama. It closely resembles colors such as burgundy, red plum, cranberry, crimson, and maroon.
When it comes to fashion I must admit I’m a bit in love with it.
However, in home fashion for me a little bit goes a long way. Here are 5 ways Marsala can be successfully incorporated into your home decorating.
1. On the walls coupled with crisp white trim.

In choosing this collection of photos I noticed I like Marsala best against white walls and paired with grays, blues, and beiges. Will I being adding Marsala to my home this year? Probably not, but I’ve learned to never say never so there’s always a possibility.
And, yes, I had to add a Marsala border to our Christmas card (lol)!
