If you don't know, Pantone is the company that puts a commonly understood name to the colors we use in the design field. It's why blue is never simply blue, but 'cornflower' or 'turquoise'.
Every December, Pantone predicts a color for the upcoming year, one that they believe will be a major color trend used in fashion, home decorating, and other industrial designs. 2014 was the year of Radiant Orchid, a light purple that was probably most popularly used as a much beloved cosmetic color this year.
Next year? Pantone predicts that the wine-hued color Marsala will be the trend marker for 2015. Personally, I'm excited because the deep red color family has always been among my favorites. Red is a bold color, but when muted to this level, it evokes a sense of confidence and sophistication.
What do YOU think about Marsala? Will you be sporting the color next year? Leave your thoughts!
