Pantone picks 2015 colour of the year

SB_pantone-colour-swatch-coPantone Color Institution has named ‘Marsala’ its colour of the year for 2015.

“While Pantone 18-3224 Radiant Orchid—the captivating 2014 colour of the year—encouraged creativity and innovation, Marsala enriches our mind, body, and soul, exuding confidence and stability,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s executive director.

“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.”

According to Pantone, Marsala is flattering against many skin tones, and pairs well with monochromatic mixes of peachy pinks and antiqued gold metallic.
