Marsala – the Pantone 2015 colour of the year January 09, 2015 14:16

Not sure how I feel about this one…I think it is all in how it is used.  I most definitely will not be rushing to my local paint store to buy a couple of gallons of this, but used in accent pieces it can look amazing.  When I first saw the colour I was thrown back to the “dusty rose” that I loved in the 80’s – my bedroom was painted with the colour for goodness sakes – what was I thinking? 

Pantone describes this as : “A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.”


Sarah Richardson’s post on Facebook today had some fantastic pieces that would add the right touch to your home without having to make a major commitment. 

So while I ponder the pro’s and con’s of this year’s colour, I think I will plan on making a delicious dish of Chicken Marsala this weekend – maybe served with a glass of “naturally robust and earthy wine”!



Enjoy your weekend everyone!
