Pantone Reveals Color of the Year for 2015: PANTONE 18-1438 Marsala (PRNewsFoto/Pantone LLC)

Global colour authority Pantone has announced its Colour of the Year for 2015: PANTONE® 18-1438 Marsala, a rich wine red.

“While PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, the captivating 2014 colour of the year, encouraged creativity and innovation, Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

“Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”
