Pantone's 2015 Color Of The Year....Marsala!

Every year, there is one report that I wait for…as a lover of all things color and trends, I always eagerly anticipate Pantone’s Color of The Year announcement. Most years never disappoint. As soon as it’s announced, you start to see the on-trend color (and derivatives of it) everywhere – from clothing to toys to my personal favorite, home décor.

In my opinion, this year’s does not disappoint…have you seen the big announcement? In case you haven’t, the 2015 Pantone Color Of The Year is (drum roll, please…)…marsala!

What is marsala? According to Pantone, it is a gorgeous terracotta red shade, which sounds like a beautiful accent color to any home décor! Whether you are a fan of earth tones, or a fan of cool colors, marsala works well with any neutral tone to help spice up your space!

And, of course, there are tons of options out there in the home décor space that would make beautiful additions to your home…everything from rugs to throw pillows to vintage books…all that would add a pop of this rich, beautiful color! Check out some of my favorites from some of my very favorite home décor sources below:

The Elle Floral Area Rug from Target

The Ampersand Marquee Light from Joss & Main

The Branford Cabinet Knob from Joss & Main

And, of course, there are so very many gorgeous handmade and vintage options on our favorite source, Etsy! Want to see some of the beautiful home décor finds from Etsy? Be sure to check out the treasury, “marsala! marsala!” over at re-nest studio, for tons more ideas!
