Every year we eagerly await Pantone's announcement for the upcoming colour of the year. Now that we know about Marsala, the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015, we can expect to see retailers stocking their shelves with all sorts of furnishings in the newest 'it' hue. This year designers will find innovative ways to integrate this earthy, rich colour into interiors, but how can you do the same in your home? We have a few tips and ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Marsala has so much going for it. It is warm, spicy and full of life. There are lots of colour combinations that will allow you to use it in your home with items that you already have. This colour likely already lives in your spice cabinet, wine rack and vanity. The time has come to unleash it all over your place. Pair it with blues, golds, dark green, pale pink, grey, tan, black, white and silver.
By simply introducing Marsala through the use of accessories you can monopolize on the trend without breaking the bank. Marsala is absolutely gorgeous, but will be gone again in one short year. Curtains, towels, throw pillows, bedding or an area rug would be great places to use Marsala in 2015. Paint The Town Marsala
Creating an accent wall featuring Marsala will warm up your interior. This will work especially well if your furniture and accessories are fairly neutral. Painting takes a bit of elbow grease, but is inexpensive and adds enormous impact that can easily be changed. This colour would look really romantic in a dining room.
Wine tones have been incorporated into homes for ages. Marsala conjures up images of the opulent interiors of royal castles. Picture plush velvet, luxurious brocade and rich wall coverings. Now dial it back. Way back. Select textiles with patterns and texture that will give you that lavish feel with a modern aesthetic.
