Meet Marsala: Pantone’s Color Of The Year

Househappy —  December 9, 2014 — Leave a comment

Since 1990, Pantone has selected an official Color of the Year that they feel is representative of current trends and moods in design and culture. The organization just revealed that their selection for 2015 is Marsala: a deep red, named after marsala wine. The executive director of the Pantone Color Institute described the color as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red” that “enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability.”

Despite similar shades such as burgundy, aubergine, and oxblood trending in both decor and fashion recently, some are unhappy with the choice of Marsala as color of the year. Outlets such as New York Magazine and The Atlantic have expressed their displeasure with the selection. But as Slate reminds us, there’s no accounting for taste. We at Househappy happen to like it. Maybe not for a whole room, but for accents here and there. And its depth and warmth are especially appropriate during the cool winter months. What do you think? Will you be painting your walls or nails in Marsala anytime soon?
