We’re a little into the new year and with that always comes new beginnings.  One of our favorite parts of a new year is the announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year.  As some of you may or may not know, the color for 2015 is marsala & we adore it!

It’s so versatile.  It can be used as an accent or serve as the groundwork in your space, it can be toned down or used for vibrancy, and more importantly we love how it looks with neutrals!  As you might know, we love the use of black and white in a space [it creates a classic and timeless feel], but we love that unexpected edge that adds character.  Marsala serves perfectly as that bold pop.

If you’re feeling bold, we recommend using it in the following ways: wall color, sofa upholstery, dramatic drapery panels, or pops of it throughout the space.  If you’re feeling more modest, we recommend using it in the following ways: pillows, a single chair, or accessories.

Who wouldn’t love this color?  It’s the color of red wine, which we love, & it’s always five o’clock somewhere!
