The Pantone Color Institute®, the design industry’s color authority, has culled through hundreds of colors to select this year’s must-have color, Marsala. An earthy reddish-brown, Marsala was selected for its versatility in fashion, make up and for home décor, and for its gender neutrality.
As an earthy color, Marsala is very inviting, and can be used subtlety or boldly to update a room. A couch in this “it” hue can warm up a room with its plushness while still being durable due to the darker shade hiding stains! If just adding a piece here and there, consider a rug, drapes or a throw pillow with this pigment. The color works well as a single shade, or in textures, so don’t hesitate to go bold.
To really incorporate this trending tint, try adding an accent wall to an all-white room for an instantly luxurious feel.
If you’re worried about overdosing on Marsala, start with smaller pieces, such as placemats for the dining room or linens in the bedroom or bathroom. Add new wall art that features the color, spruce up an existing lamp by adding a lampshade in Marsala, or incorporate it into flower arrangements around your home.
Whether you use this sumptuous hue as a backdrop, or as an accent to your existing color scheme, you’ll enjoy the warmth that’s instantly added to your décor!
