Say goodbye to the days of only using Marsala in the kitchen for cooking favorite American-made Italian meals, and say hello to the latest color trend for fall.
Pantone.com features the winey red-brown in its Fall 2015 Fashion Color Report and deems it the 2015 Color of the Year for both fashion and interiors. Much like the fortified wine often used in cooking, this tasteful hue embodies the rich satisfaction of a delicious plate of chicken Marsala.
Whether fresh off the summer market and settling into a new home, or trying to update dull spaces, brighten up any room with the naturally inspired color pallet for fall, featuring subtle neutrals like Desert Sage to bolder hues like Marsala and Cadmium Orange.
From closets to kitchens, Marsala brings a feel of elegance and sophistication to every space. Instantly create a welcoming environment with accent pieces, bright pillows, accessories or paint with this color that compliments easier than expected.
Experts say that the beauty of Marsala is most radiant when applied to a textured surface, like a great rug or an upholstered club chair. But, for those slightly skeptical about following the trend, try adding small pops through tasteful linens or simple tabletop accessories.
Dramatic yet grounding, luxurious yet comfortable, Marsala dominates the season’s trending color pallet with its ability to turn cold spaces into warm, inviting retreats just in time for fall.
