Marsala - Pantone Colour of the Year 2015

Pantone - Marsala Every year, Pantone - the world-renowned authority on the communication of colour across a variety of industries - announce their chosen Colour of the Year.  For 2015, the hue scientists at Pantone have chosen ‘Marsala’ as the go-to colour and the rather eloquent reasoning behind this year’s choice is as follows:

“Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

Pantone - Marsala The effect of Pantone’s annual announcement is felt and normally embraced across the fashion, beauty and interior markets and therefore means that the colour they choose has to offer a certain versatility. After selecting a series of quite bracing and bold colours over the last few years such as ‘Radiant Orchid’, ‘Emerald’ and ‘Tangerine Tango’ for their Couleur de l'Année, Pantone’s choice this year has a more suave and luxurious feel to it than recent offerings and would certainly provide a hearty and rich warmth to any interior scheme.
