PANTONE already has announced the trending color for 2015. It is MARSALA, the color that derives from the name of famous Sicilian sweet red wine produced in the area of Marsala. Such wine is served as an aperitif, we can guess then that marsala should be the hue of accessories, an intriguing accent rather than a dominating motive of an interior…

On the palette of colors marsala situates somewhere between red, copper orange and beige. It is the color of summer warmth and juiciness of red fruits; it embodies a warm earth and its vital power. Marsala is supposed to enrich the body, mind and soul, exuding confidence and stability, according to the words of Lee Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute. It is subtly seductive shade, which is equally appealing to men and women. Marsala is a stirring and flavorful earthy shade, one that encourages color creativity and experimentation. A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.
