color trend: marsala

well hello! it’s been a long while since i posted one of these but i’ve got another color crush. her name is marsala and she is pantone’s color of the year for 2015. marsala is a really sophisticated, earthy color that appeals to both men and women. it feels dramatic without being over the top. pantone’s previous selections for color of the year have been a real hit or miss with me (can’t say i loved radiant orchid) but this year, i think they nailed it. you can find out more about marsala here!

as i do, i created a little moodboard pulling some great marsala-inspired pieces, i  just love the bold pops the color can bring into a space, especially around the holidays!  what about you, are you crushin’ on marsala? what’s your favorite way to use this color in your home?
