marsala…

it’s official…the color of 2015 is…marsala…

pantone’s description reads:

A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls exuding confidence and stability.   Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth. 
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. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.
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.

can you see this color in your wardrobe?  i have to say…i am pretty excited that i bought a long wool jacket in this same color during the summer months…can’t wait to wear it…and excited that i already have a piece in the color of the year!
