Color of the Year – Marsala

When I hear Marsala, I think of chicken or wine…I can’t help it, I’m Italian. But apparently there’s more to Marsala than just poultry.

According to Pantone, “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.”

At first I wasn’t sold on the color, but it is starting to grow on me, and I actually really like it. Take a peak to see for yourself.
