Marsala: Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year

Published: June 19th, 2015 | Updated: November 24th, 2020

In December 2014, Pantone unveiled its choice for 2015 Color of the Year. They chose Marsala, which is a lovely, earthy shade of wine red, as the name suggests. We were excited to hear the announcement a few months ago, and we thought we would share some more information about this versatile color.

Marsala’s biggest advantage is that you can pair this color with just about any other color out there. This makes it a great choice for homes of all styles, especially if you are tackling a home improvement project. You can pair it with colors like amber, golden yellow, turquoise, teal, blue and several others.

The color is warm and inviting, and that makes it a great choice for home interiors. Whether you use it as a paint color or for carpeting, any room it is used in will make you and your loved ones feel welcome and comfortable. Marsala is colorful but not too overwhelming, so it will brighten up any room without being too front-and-center. You can even use it as an accent color: curtains, smaller decorations or as an accent wall.

What’s more, Marsala is a very rich and full-bodied color, which makes it a great choice for textured surfaces, like carpets and upholstery. You can add a touch of elegance and luxury to any room in your home when you opt for carpeting in this color. It is already a popular color for stripes and floral patterns, so choosing carpeting in this color will really make those types of patterns pop.

Marsala has more uses than just interior decorating though. It’s a popular choice for men’s and women’s fashion, jewelry, make-up, hand bags, hats, shoes and much more. It looks great against most skin tones, and people can wear this shade with confidence.
