Happy New Year! We are back in The Studio after a much needed break to celebrate the holiday season with our family and friends. We thought we would start off the new year with Pantone’s color of the year, Marsala. Not our favorite, and it hasn’t been racking up the rave reviews around the design industry. It’s a muddy and muted version of burgundy in my opinion and it just looks flat. I am such a color lover and bold saturated colors like tangerine, emerald and turquoise (past winners) always catch my eye and inspire me to incorporate them when designing.
We pulled a few “Marsala” pieces to see if we could bring back the love for the 2015 color of the year, and here is what we came up with. Not too bad when you pull a few versions of the color together. I would say I am more drawn to the more saturated version of the color. What do you think?
