On-Trend: Marsala, Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year!

On Trend, Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration

Earthy and elegant, Marsala is the well-chosen Pantone Color for 2015 and we’re super inspired to incorporate it into this year’s event designs!

We’re already seeing it on runways, clothing racks and home furniture, but what about down the aisle or adorning reception tables? We have high hopes for this wine-inspired reddish tone! Marsala has many merits: it’s universally flattering for all skin tones and genders; it plays well with others, from pastels to jewel tones; and it can go casual or opulent, whether you choose a matte or sheen finish.

Your chosen details don’t have to be Pantone-perfect; a Marsala-inspired deep earthy red is always an elegant choice for your next event. We’ve illustrated two event designs inspired by Marsala using our inventory to inspire you today! Enjoy!
