The Pantone Color Institute has announced Marsala as the 2015 color of the year, succeeding 2014’s color Radiant Orchid!

“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,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

With the holiday season upon us, our interior décor experts are always looking for new design trends to incorporate into clients’ homes and businesses. Account Manager Anna Saemisch uses Marsala as her go-to color for holiday décor because it has a great blend of red and burgundy and beautifully complements all types of décor. Anna loves the color because it works well with natural woodsy schemes to bring in a pop of warm color, and it also works well with platinum shades by adding warmth and color without being overbearing. We think Marsala can be used in both natural and elegant settings!

The color of the year can easily be incorporated into your indoor and outdoor spaces by using plants or patio furniture that resemble the color. Cushions for patio sets are easy to change out to correspond with any color, and seasonal container arrangements could be created with plants that have hues similar to Marsala’s, including the pardon me daylily, little wine cup daylily, niobe clematis, cancun red mini button pom, and the blushing bride hydrangea. While using Marsala-colored plants is an obvious way to spruce up your space, consider also complementing this color by using cream or white plants for a bold contrast!
