Marsala – Colour of the year 2015
Last week Pantone announced Marsala as colour of the year 2015.
Here it is its official statement:
The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors.
Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, 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.
What can I say. I’m in love with these maroon, burgundy shades. Marsala to me is a warm burgundy with an earthy, brown and rusty undertone. A sort of perfect shade to my eyes. I love how this colour complements all other colours which make it a so versatile, almost neutral shade. It warms up cool, smoky lilacs and greys. It complements perfectly other earthy warm tones. It is also lovely with pop of colours, such as yellow, rose, violet and blue.
