Introducing Marsala – Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2015

12th December 2014

Pantone has introduced its colour of the year for 2015 and that colour is Marsala. Described as a ‘tasteful hue’ appealing to both men and women, Pantone describe Marsala as embodying ‘the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.’

This warm earthy shade combines well with neutrals and Pantone also recommends ‘amber, umber and golden yellows, greens in both turquoise and teal, and blues in the more vibrant range’. You can view their recommended colour pairings here.

For more information on how Marsala can be applied through all areas of design, take a look at the interview with Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute and David Shah, Editorial Director
