Pantone's Color of the Year 2015...bring a taste of marsala to the garden
  • Posted February 16, 2015

The color prognosticators at Pantone have named Marsala as the color of the year for 2015. Who could resist a least a little taste of a shade named for an Italian wine? Marsala is a rich and grounding hue that plays well with others.


Yes, you can find flowers in shades of Marsala.

Marsala looks great with a range of other colors, including the still popular aqua shades and apple greens.


It looks especially rich on glass or pottery; this kissing cousin of burgundy or maroon, with a yummier name!
