Fashionable Friday: Pantone Color of the Year 2015 – Marsala


Every year, for the past few years, color experts Pantone chooses what it thinks will be the color of the year. This year, they selected a deep wine-y red they call Marsala. I immediately thought of all the inky possibilities available in the burgundy, red-black and deep berry range. There were so many to choose from but I chose Private Reserve as the closest match to Marsala. Which inky color do you think is most “marsala”?
