When the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 was announced it had been met with mixed emotions by EC2 readers.
Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year…Marsala.
It seems like everyone is okay with the color for nails, lips, and anything fashion related, but pretty skeptical of how marsala will work within interior design and spaces.
Pantone is confident in Marsala’s versatility, but I thought it would be fun to dig around for awesome spaces already using the color. I’m gonna convince you it’s deserving of its color of the year title.
Paired with red and aqua.
Marsala pairs well with with warm leather and even cheeky, bright pinks.
Even though Marsala is kind of a rich tone that works well with warm, saturated colors, I love how it looks in this light grey and white space.
Each of the colors in this piece of art work well as accents with Marsala. I’ve been on the blush and deep green train for a while now, and I think that Marsala is the perfect addition to my love affair.
Personally, I don’t think I plan to use Marsala as my main color in a space, but this room shows that it definitely works.
These modern shelving cubes are incredible and the marsala looks oh so yummy with mint, pinks, peaches, pale yellow, and deep teal. Seriously, is there a color it doesn’t go with? I’m not so sure!
This is how marsala plays as a cool, modern tone.
Now this space doesn’t necessarily have marsala in it, but I think the brown throw and pillow could easily be replaced with it. I think it’s meant to be with copper and rose gold!
This is right in my style sweet spot lately… a few fun shades of pink, marsala, grey, and copper. It’s so, so good!
A more muted use.
Southwest or Aztec style is the more obvious choice for Marsala. It might be obvious, but I still love it.
Clearly this isn’t a room, but I think that the wedding world was onto Marsala and it’s color combos for a long while now.
Speaking of color combos, here are the suggestions from Pantone and then a few I like.
Okay, I’ve gotta know. Have I convinced you that Marsala can work for interior spaces?
