The color of the year. Marsala. For some reason, it makes me feel like eating...(chicken marsala anyone?!)
I do love the color. It’s a beautiful mix of red with a hint of blue…very nice. How much can you use a color before you go overboard? Do you just dress or accessorize with it? Do you decorate your house with it?
I have a very good friend who, growing up, loved the color purple. When you looked at her, you saw purple. She wore purple most days, her purse and book bag were purple, her room was purple, every folder she had was purple. And when she married, the colors at her wedding were purple. Even now, with children, she wears and carries purple. Her commitment made an impact on me. Even today, when I shop and see a purple dress or shoes, I think of her.
I’ve noticed most everyone has something to offer in Marsala. It’s a nice color, so why not? Even we do. Though it wasn’t intentional this year, we certainly have our bases covered. I wonder who will commit to this color as my friend committed to purple. And have purses and book bags and folders and paint and…
Thanks Pantone, for picking such a sweet color this year!
