Pantone Color of the Year: Marsala
I don’t generally think of myself as a pink-wearing kinda lady (just never thought it worked with my skin-tone), but this is a color I can hop on board with. It has just enough browny-red to compensate for the lighter value and, although this makes it somewhat tricky to duplicate, I could definitely see how it could work well with my wardrobe in the coming months. What I really like is the colors it pairs well with, as shown below: a pale, robin’s egg blue, bright “celery” green, and a peachy nude. Although the color may seem like it would be best suited for fall or winter, adding these light hues brightens it up and brings it into spring.
Marsala for the Home
Although this is not a sponsored post, I noticed that all of these items are available for purchase from LampsPlus.com. Maybe I need to consider shopping there for future home decor purchases!
Up next, Marsala fashion picks… the color is a little harder to identify with so many variants in the shade, so terms like “rose”, “mauve” and “maroon” came into play with this search. The color looks fantastic with gold, nude tones and pale blue-greens, so I added a coordinating items in there to showcase that.
Here’s the one “marsala”-esque piece I’ve added to my wardrobe thus far. Thanks for catching on to the trend, Walmart! 😉
