Pantone Introduces Color of the Year for 2015

Wherever you are in your Christmas shopping list, stop what you are doing and read this now.  You are going to want to snatch up anything you see in this color.

Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color, has recently announced the Color of the Year for 2015 and we are already in love.  The 2015 Color of the Year is Marsala 18-1438:

Color of the Year 2015

We love Marsala because it oozes class, style, and chic all wrapped up in one color and that is what we are all about at Classic Tassels and More.  But here’s what Pantone says of Marsala:

Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.

The Versatility of Marsala

  • Equally appealing to men and women, Marsala is a stirring and flavorful shade for apparel and accessories, one that encourages color creativity and experimentation
  • Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala 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 Marsala 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.

We particularly like these Marsala color pairings that Pantone provided:

Be on the lookout for Marsala popping up all around in fashion apparel, makeup, home decor and certainly in our upcoming tassels.  Want more Marsala?  You can read the full background on Pantone’s choice here.

We’ve got a little Southern Style Christmas headed your way later this week.  Until then…enjoy finishing up your Christmas list and ho, ho, ho!!!
