Pantone Color of the Year 2015 – Marsala
Pantone Color of the Year 2015
I loved everything about this editorial, but for me the showstopper is the dress from Watters. If I’m being 100, this is actually a short black bridesmaids dress with a blush skirt on top of it. I worked with Alethea at Watters to pull this look together once I was unable to find the perfect black wedding dress, and I feel like this turned out even better! Let me know what you think about it in the comments – would you wear this look on your wedding day?
The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors. Add elegance to any room by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces, accessories and paint. Marsala’s plush characteristics are enhanced when the color is applied to textured surfaces, making it an ideal choice for rugs and upholstered furniture. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings, interiors, and of course weddings!
