Marsala: Color of the Year

By now we're sure you've heard of Pantone's 2015 color of the year, Marsala! This tasteful hue is described by Pantone as an, "earthy red wine that embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while it's grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, earthiness." We think this romantic color will go into hyperdrive this fall as people pull out their sweaters and suede dresses and start to put away their gingham prints. Marsala is the perfect color for a comfortable, cozy room or for adding a sophisticated note to an interior.  

Wondering how to incorporate Marsala into your life? Read on for more tips! 

Pantone's color of the year is easier to incorporate into your interior than you think. Because Marsala is a color you often see in nature, it is soothing and pleasing to the eye. Pantone recommends pairing it with neutrals, golden yellows, or umber. If you're worried about painting your walls then start by finding the perfect carpet as a foundation. Adding a pop of color to your floors gives you freedom to play around with textures in your furniture and add accents around the room without overpowering the interior. 

Carini Lang offers several options that incorporate Marsala with organic colors into a great design. Whether or not you pair a Marsala colored carpet with creamy furniture pieces or go bold with a Marsala paint color, this color always looks sophisticated. As with any color trend, this color is open to interpretation. Along with true Marsala you can dive into other variations of reds which can work together in the same room or just choose one tone to run with!
