The 2015 Color of the Year
Pantone has named the 2015 color of the year – it is Marsala. Yep as in the wine…quite the switch from last year’s blue hues that were trending. According to the Pantone website, Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute® says with regards to the color in the home:
Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth. Marsala is a natural fit for the kitchen and dining room – making it ideal for tabletop, small appliances and linens throughout the home.
As usual designers and home décor experts, once the color is announced, forecast further what color trends are likely in 2015. Here are a few expert opinions on what the color trends will be in 2015…
Many designers are suggesting using this color on the “accents’ in the home since it is such a bold choice and certainly not indicative of spring tones.

Mustard yellow and burnt sienna shades of untouched territory and au courant create a lively atmosphere while adding sleek texture to wooden finishes. Light turquoise blue and sea foam green tones amplify elusive shapes.
House and Beautiful
While many home designers are not fond of the “wine” hue and suggest using it only for accents, House and Beautiful has fully embraced Pantone’s choice going so far as to show photos of Marsala room examples or ones where the deep red color is the centerpiece of the room. Here is one choice they showed for the kitchen. They say in their article, 8 Deep Red Rooms for Fans of Marsala, the Pantone Color of the Year 2015:
Designers Carey Maloney and Hermes Mallea created a vibrant kitchen in a New York town house. The Burgundy La Cornue Chateau 150 range is the kitchen’s focal point and showstopper. “Everything else recedes into the background,” Maloney says. “I mean look at that stove doing its thing — you don’t need any more statements.”
In case you are wondering, they call it the ‘statement stove’ – not sure I would suggest going this bold if you are selling any time soon. But hey, if you just moved in – make a statement, go for it!
