Selected as Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015, Marsala has a rich and earthy tone similar to the full-bodied wine from which the color gets its name. An elegant color on its own, Marsala can also be a strong accent when paired with other colors and textures. Compliment the subdued red with warm tones of orange and coral, or cooler tones of light blues and purples.
