Did you know there’s an authority on what’s hot and what’s not when it comes to color hues? That’s right, the Pantone Color InstituteTM designates a Color of the Year annually, and this year it’s Marsala. Just what goes into that selection? Pantone believes its selected color reflects what consumers are looking for in a shade that crosses all design barriers – from fashion to interiors and more.
So what does Marsala look like? It’s an earthy red-brown of sorts. Some might classify it as maroon. And aside from just settling on a color of the year alone, Pantone offers up pairing suggestions for those who embrace its designated shade and want to work it into their lifestyle. We suggest you visit their website at www.pantone.com for tips and more.
Another hot shade in interiors for 2015? Navy. Be it Moody Indigo, Wood Violet, Eclipse or Meteorite, all shades of navy blue are hot, hot, hot for 2015. After all, it signifies poise, finesse and polish, and pairs fabulously with an array colors like white, pale pink, cream, gray, coral and sage to name a few.
