THE COLOR OF 2015 – There’s nothing quite like the promise of a new beginning. A clean slate, a fresh start… or a brand new color to serve as your guiding light for the entire year.

The latest in a line of bright and edgy, but not-so-versatile predecessors (2014’s Radiant Orchid and 2013’s Emerald Green come to mind), the Pantone Color for 2015 is Marsala, a subdued and warm reddish-brown hue. Adaptable enough to be used in everything from fashion and beauty to interior design, this rich tone is an all-purpose color that you’ll love to discover. Its appeal fits right in with the 90s revival that has been taking the fashion and beauty world by storm, but it also has some sort of atemporal quality that makes it an ideal accent for home décor.

Marsala is a sophisticated shade that encourages experimentation, as Pantone rightfully claims. Paired with either a soft tone in a supporting role or a bright tone in a leading role, the color of 2015 compliments and shines through anything!

Just when was the last time you embraced an earthy, sophisticated shade? Chances are it came on a sweater, on a bag or on shoes – but surely you haven’t given it much attention. Whether in winter or in summer, Marsala can really make a statement and enrich your style, mind, body and soul. And that’s just the beginning! You can think of it as an ambassador, a representative for an entire line of earth-tone colors: red, wine, brown, burgundy, crimson.
