I don’t know if you follow the current color trends or not, but it is something that I recently started doing. Not only for my job, but just for curiosity.
With that being said, Pantone has announced the 2015 Color of the Year. (drum roll, please!!!)
I really like this color. It’s quiet intriguing. It can be used with just about any other color in the spectrum. Personally, I really like it with Peach and/or Gray. The coolness & the warmth of both colors play well together, and I think that it could be used year round with the right venue. Here is a little collage that I put together with some photos that I found on pinterest.
And here is some information that can found on the Pantone’s website.
The Versatility of Marsala
- Equally appealing to men and women, Marsala is a stirring and flavorful shade for apparel and accessories, one that encourages color creativity and experimentation
- Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala is a great go-to color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows lips and hair.
- Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors
- An earthy shade with a bit of sophistication, texture is the story in print and packaging. A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.
“… Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.
“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.”
