The Pantone colour of the year 2015 is Marsala! The powerful expression of the warm colour tone with nuances of red, brown and copper looks elegant and it is still an earthed statement.
The copper trend already proved how things would develop: Warm and sensual tones are en vogue! Marsala goes with the success of the reddish noble metal, which appeared in trendy surroundings in the past few months. ”Marsala spreads warmth, which attracts and embraces us, since it is a subtly seductive tone”, explained Leatrice Eiseman, expert for colours and executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Marsala is able to touch our body and soul as it is a natural, rooted and earthy tone. Like the full-bodied wine, which gives its name to the colour – this one also embodies the opulence of an extensive meal, while the red-brown roots spread a cultivated and natural elegance at the same time.
”Nourishing and completing is how Marsala is predestined to be a tone for the kitchen and the dining room – while the shadows on tables, small decoration elements and fabrics are able to be found all over the house”, explained the psychologist Eiseman about where the colour might be found.
Marsala’s warmth is inviting, emotional and comfortable. The lovingly and also stylish tone with the Pantone code 19-1438 is especially emphasized on fabrics and rough materials, since they focus the natural depth of the tone with their structure.
The Pantone Color Institute is considered to be a real authority regarding colours. That’s the reason why the excitement grows when the American are up to present their new trend colours – since these are big developments, which also decide about design and fashion in the upcoming year.
