Paint Ponder: Marsala Pantone Color of the Year 2015

Marsala.  That’s the choice of the color of the 2015 from the color experts at Pantone.  They believe this color (18-1438) will influence fashion, home decor and graphic design trends next year.  Pantone described the color in a press release last Thursday as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red.  Much like the fortified wine that give Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling mean, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.  This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing.” What do you think?  Do you love it more than 2014 Radiant Orchid or 2013 Emerald?
