" an earthy yet muted red wine colour with strong brown undertones.. "
For better or for worse, when Pantone speaks, the wedding and design world listen. The leading authority on all things colour sets the tone every year and we all follow suit, in one way or another. Over the years, designers, decorators, florists and brides have rejoiced in exciting hues of green, orange, pink, and blue but this year's surprise winner has caught many off guard. A far cry from bright and exciting, Marsala, an earthy yet muted red wine colour with strong brown undertones, has been named Pantone's colour for 2015.
This is a rich, warm colour that signals confidence and strength while giving a sense of groundedness. It is not a fun, flirty colour like what we've seen over the past few seasons but it is one that beckons sophistication from its richness.
Many brides look to Pantone's colour wheel to pick their wedding colours but because Marsala appears to be difficult to work with, many are saying "No" to this year's pick. What do we say? Go for it!
" Marsala is a beautiful rich colour and when paired with the appropriate companion colours, it will make a wonderful statement for any wedding this year and in any season. "
