If you’re plugged into the design world, even a little, I’m sure you’ve heard about the color of the year announced by Pantone. In 2015, it’s Marsala…
In episode three of Design Ramblings, Kriste and I decided to discuss the 2015 color as well as the whole idea of a color of the year…
I realized after I talked about the bluish/green paired with Marsala that those colors are both in the rug from my Opa’s house. It actually looks amazing with the navy, cornflower, brick and even that pea green! Whoever put these colors together had a wonderful eye. I always feel like rugs are a challenge for me, but I do think they can be a great jumping off point for the design of a room.
As I mentioned in the video, we mixed our own version of Marsala with MMS milk paint just for fun. The Pantone Marsala does have a bit more brown in it, but they’re pretty close.
Here’s the recipe, if you’re interested. The number before the color name refers to the amount of parts in the mix.
And, as a side note, I started the Whole30 plan yesterday. (You can read my post about it HERE.) As I was seeding a pomegranate and thinking about this post, I noticed that my snack of choice was perfectly coordinated!
Well, the seeds are a brighter red, but the skin is pretty close.
Anyway, what do you think about the color of the year? Are you a Marsala fan? Does the color of the year influence your design or style choices at all?
