A New Jersey-based company’s Pantone Matching System has major influence on the color choices of graphic artists, designers and product developers around the world. Twice a year, Pantone hosts a secret meeting in a European capital, comprised of representatives from many nations’ color-standards groups. After two days of presentations and debate, they select a color for the following year.

On Jan, 1 2015, Pantone announced Marasala as Color of the Year. You might know Marsala as a wine produced in Marasala, Italy but this Marasala is a wine-red color with a brown undertone.
Marsala is already a home-staging favorite, appearing in accent pieces and accessories from vases and throw pillows to patterned rugs. Pantone says textured surfaces enhance Marsala so it will likely be a popular choice for rugs and upholstered living room furniture. The color also is expected to be prominent in stripe and floral patterns, such as in printed placemats, dinnerware, bedding and throws.

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® said,

“Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability.”

She also goes on to say, “Nurturing and fulfilling, Marsala is a natural fit for the kitchen and dining room because, among other reasons, it is a great appetite stimulant. It is also versatile and sophisticated, making it ideal for tabletops, small appliances and linens throughout the home.”

So remember, when you decide on purchasing, selling or decorating a home, Marsala stylish tone to go with.
