The interior design color of the year is Marsala,

says Pantone LLC.

This yummy and versatile hue is sophisticated, hearty and stylish.

According to Pantone LLC, a world-renowned authority on color, “A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls. 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 deep hue and richness of Marsala make it an elegant choice for use on its own, with accents of mustard, vibrant blue, soft green and gentle pink and lavender. Marsala is also a perfect accent for many neutral colors, especially yellowy creams, warm greys and taupes. 

 

Think Marsala for a dramatically painted accent wall, for upholstery and drapery fabrics, or for a beautiful rug. It’s also perfect for linens in the kitchen, bathrooms, boudoir and dining room.

 

Add a splash of rich Marsala to your décor for color, warmth and a touch of sophistication.
