Hello friends,

Well this year forget about our all-time favorite – Black color, instead fall in love with Marsala – a brownish-red wine shade which has been announced as the COLOR OF THE YEAR 2015.

“Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.

The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors.

MARSALA COLOR PAIRING

Whether in a flat or textured material, or with a matte or gloss finish, this highly varietal shade combines dramatically with neutrals, including warmer taupes and grays. Because of its burnished undertones, sultry Marsala is highly compatible with amber, umber and golden yellows, greens in both turquoise and teal, and blues in the more vibrant range.

  • Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle it is a great “go-to” color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows lips and hair.
  • Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown it brings color warmth into home interiors.
  • An earthy shade with a bit of sophistication, texture is the story in print and packaging. A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.
