Every year,  Pantone declares it's "Colour of the year".  

The company hosts secret meetings, twice a year in a European Capital City where after presentations and debate,  a colour is chosen for the following year.  The results of the meetings are published in "Pantone View" which fashion designers, textile manufacturers, interior designers and the like use to guide their inspirations.

The choice for 2015 is MARSALA  

This will be a delicious colour for winter, paired with greys, browns and warm creams.  But I also imagine it for summer coupled with the palest turquise, creams and whites.

As with all colour,  when one has a colour in mind,  one sees it everywhere.  I suddenly began noticing Marsala here and there in my home.

I so look forward to seeing Marsala appearing in interiors, fashion and elsewhere...

A very happy New Year everyone... it's certainly underway.  I always love the beginning of a new year!
