Have you heard of Marsala? You’re probably thinking of the wine, but it’s much more than that. For 2015, Marsala is also Pantone’s color of the year. For decorators, this red-brown color is rich, sophisticated, and earthy. Translating well into the home décor arena, Marsala brings warmth and color to any room. Here at Windows & More serving the Lake Ozark region, our decorators can help find ways to incorporate Marsala into your home design. Here are just a few ideas:
Custom Drapery, Valances
Marsala is a bold color that demands attention, and is beautiful as a top treatment or in pattern on custom drapery. Solid colors make a defining statement, and a patterned fabric for your drapery can introduce a new color in a more subtle way. Marsala also works well on valances and top treatments, paired with most any blind or shade.
Custom bedding is a beautiful way to use Marsala in your bedroom design. Create a custom comforter, or design throw pillows and shams that bring the color in as a bright accent. Our designers can work with you to make this new color a bold part of your bedroom makeover, or introduce it in a more subtle way.
Marsala Blinds and Shades
Window treatments are a great way to incorporate Marsala into any room. As your local Hunter Douglas dealer, we offer a variety of window coverings that feature the hues of Marsala. Select from such products as Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Solera® Soft Shades, or Provenance® Woven Wood Shades.
Color Combinations with Marsala
Depending on how you want to use this new color, the options for other colors in the room are endless. Marsala combines dramatically with neutrals, including warmer taupes and grays. Because of its burnished undertones, sultry Marsala is highly compatible with amber and golden yellows, greens in both turquoise and teal, and blues in the more vibrant range.
Marsala works on solid traditional fabric or in a patterned fabric, such as chintz or chenille. Corduroy is also making a comeback, and the boldness of this year’s color combined with the soft and cuddly corduroy feel may work perfectly in your home. Whether on a pillow, a couch, or chair, corduroy exudes comfort but looks just as vibrant in a formal room.
You don’t have to go all out to incorporate Pantone’s color of the year into your room design. Use it as one of your accent colors with pillows, throws, rugs, artwork, and accessories. In a bedroom, Marsala works beautifully either in your bedding itself, or on extra pillows and hanging art. Be creative!
