You could be bold and paint an entire accent wall the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year, or you could opt for something a bit more subtle. We get it. Not everyone wants to lather their homes in every color of the moment, but there are a ton of sneaky ways to add a tinge of Marsala to your space while still making a big impact.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute gives us the scoop, “Marsala is an extremely versatile color, not only in home decor but within the framework of the ultimate home accessory – the art piece itself – as the rich, grounded hue lends itself to both a traditional space or a contemporary setting.”
Read on to learn how to “Marsala-fy” your space. These tips are bold enough to make a splash yet sophisticated enough to create a lasting decor style that works well regardless of the season.
Pile a few Marsala pillows onto a lonely love seat for instant impact. Tie the look together with a new framed print that includes a pop of the popular color.
Keep your coffee table organized with these colorful nesting trays. Geometric patterns add another point of interest while still allowing the bold hue to shine.
Hang an abstract and portrait-style print side-by-side in an overlooked area for a mini Marsala gallery wall that will completely change the mood of the room.
Or, if you’re still feeling a bit color-shy, tone it down even more.
Enhance a photograph in Marsala-sepia shades with metallic wall decor and furniture. The Marsala theme will be faint, but on-trend nonetheless.
