pantone colour of the year – 2015

Posted by on Dec 11, 2014

Last week Pantone introduced Marsala as their colour of the year for 2015.  Like the wine, it’s an earthy red.  I think it would look great in a den or formal dining room but it’s unlikely I’ll be incorporating it in my own home.  On social media, my favourite quote was when Genevieve Gorder referred to it as ‘organy’.  Yup,...
