Were you as giddy as me when Pantone announced its color for 2015? I will admit I wasn’t expecting the rich deep color of Marsala, for this year. For some reason blue was all around, and I thought a soft blue hue would make its mark this new year. Whether you like rich colors or not, Marsala instantly made me feel a mood, it’s definitely an impactful color. It’s elegant, and is a statement when used on its own or as an accent with other colors. It’s seductive, like the full-bodied wine its name originates, and earthy from its warm red-brown undertones.
It seems like the perfect color choice for decor and fashion. While some are questioning how much of an impact it can make in the event styling world, I personally envisioned an intimate comfy dinner party, and an ultra feminine, yet sophisticated Valentine’s get-together with the gals when I first saw it. This color works well in almost any fabric, texture, and material, making it universally appealing and stylish. It’s dramatic, and at the same time subtle, which is why it’s also a great color for both men and women. For my first I’m Loving installment of 2015, I decided to feature my favorite Marsala color photos, hoping to inspire you and I into incorporating more of it our daily lives.

I personally love the color Marsala in fashion, especially during winter and upcoming fall. Not sure how much of it I’ll incorporate it during Spring/Summer, but if it means having this Scalloped Mini Skirt in Sugar Plum from Free People I’m all in.
Marsala inspired florals, may seem fitting of autumn, but it works beautiful when incorporated with neutral and blush or red tones for winter, or with whites, and bright pops of pink and greens for spring and summer months. Equally, I loved this centerpiece featured on Style Me Pretty because it doesn’t initially scream Pantone’s color, but the array of colors that reside within Marsala allow these florals to work for any occasion.
