Now that it’s officially the year of Marsala, according to Pantone, tell us, will you use the color around the home? The choice for Color of the Year seemed pulled out of thin air to me. However, I like earthy tones, and Marsala brings to mind a Moroccan souk, Turkish kilims and terracotta in Spanish Colonial and other Mediterranean architecture. I can imagine it as a nighttime lip color or suede boots. Here are a few ways we like it in interior design.

Marsala looks great on the walls in a dining room or library; here, interior designer Scott Sanders has toned it down with light trimwork up to chair rail height.

It’s also yummy in a kitchen as a splash with gray and natural wood tones.
I also like Marsala in a mix of other hues from its red color family, like in this cozy wool rug, or seen in the colors of a brick wall.
So, do you have any marsala in your home? If not, do you plan to add any? What do you think of these color of the year projections? Please chime in!
