Incorporating the 2015 Color of the Year – Marsala
In keeping with the yearly tradition of unveiling the this year’s hot hue, Pantone recently announced their color of the year. More commonly known as a Sicilian wine or recipe ingredient, 2015 is the year of Marsala.
This red-brown shade has been a popular color for fall/winter beauty and fashion trends for the past couple of years and is now gaining popularity in other areas of art and design. Pantone.com describes Marsala as a dramatic tone that “…embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.” The Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, continues to praise the color that “enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us into its embracing warmth.”
