Marsala: Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015
The color for 2015? The charismatic and highly varietal shade of Marsala; a tasteful hue that embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. Complex and full-bodied, this hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing; translating easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.

Hey guys! Hope you are all doing great. I am slowly getting myself into the Christmas spirit. I have crossed off most of my Christmas Shopping/Gift list. Only two weekends to go, so I'll have this weekend to do more shopping and the next weekend for gift-wrapping.

In time with Christmas and the coming New Year, Pantone has announced it's Color of the Year. As you can remember, we got Radiant Orchid this year and Emerald last year. For 2015, Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015 is Marsala.
PANTONE PICKS: Black Honey eye shadow by Clinique, $38; a Fall-Winter 2015 look from Rami Al Ali and fabulous shoes as worn by the always-on-trend Kate Bosworth.
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.
