Marsala | Pantone Color of the Year 2015

December 8, 2014 - by Preeti

It's that time of the year! When Pantone introduces its color of the year. Previously, we have seen a lush, righ emerald green, vibrant and happy radiant orchid, and now...

drumroll please...!

No, no, not the dish, but like the wine. Marsala is deep, rich, creamy and all around luxurious as a color. Pantone already had a bright poppy red a couple years, so it's fiting to go with something deeper. I don't think Pantone could have picked a better color than marsala to satisfy a desi wedding color palette!

Here's a quick moodboard for wedding inspiration. Ranuculas will be everyone's best friends because of the varieties of reds and burgundies they come in.
