Pantone Color of the Year


Now that Pantone has released their 2015 Color of the Year, Marsala, it is a great time to see how the color could be incorporated in your home.

Marsala would be a great color to consider in your remodel because of its versatility. The color can easily be the major focal point of a room or add depth by using it as an accessory color.

Accessorizing Pantone's 2015 Color of the Year

In terms of accessorizing, Marsala works well through the use of pillows or even a rug.

Marsala can be both dramatic and subtle allowing you to customize your remodel.

There is also versatility in the finish to this paint: a matte finish will give off the earthy vibe while a sheen finish makes it more luxurious.

Kitchen Design Using Marsala

At Moss, we've used the same color scheme in a kitchen remodel in Oakton, VA, seen below. Depending on the type of finish and wood cabinets used, Marsala can take on any tone you want to set in your remodel.
