COLOR CRUSH :: MARSALA

Every year, a new color seems to jump out of the color wheel and be everywhere. From furniture to walls, fashion runways to the makeup counter, that color becomes a superstar, a trend setter, the cool kid everybody wants at their party. In 2015, that color is Marsala.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute, which determines the color of the year, describes Marsala as “a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in
to its embracing warmth.”

Call us quick to fall in love but we’re definitely embracing this deep red with brown undertones.
