Pantone's Color of the Year
As you may have already seen, Shaw's Style, Design and Color team named White Hot
its color of the year for 2015. But Shaw isn't the only group singling out a favorite.
Another closely watched announcement is the highly regarded experts in color from Pantone. Every December, Pantone Inc. releases a new color trend for the upcoming year, and interior designers across the globe wait anxiously for the announcement in order to ring in the new year in style.
Their 2015 color trend? Marsala - an earthy, red wine shade that works wonders at complementing rich hardwood flooring from Shaw. Whether marsala or grey is your color of the year, you can make sure your home design is stylish and up to date by incorporating splashes of Pantone's favorite hue into your rooms.
Pantone described Marsala as a shade that embodies the rare balance of earthy and elegant.
"Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness," Pantone announced.
Marsala is also a welcoming color that gives off a sleek yet warm vibe. This makes it a great addition to an entryway, inviting guests into the rest of your home in a hearty, stylish atmosphere. According to Design and Trend, another characteristic that makes this rich red a perfect choice for a home is its ability to cater to both men and women - it's rare for such a bold color to look great in both a bachelor pad and a girl's bedroom.
