Pantone's 2015 color of the year is marsala. Named for the Sicilian wine, this red-brown hue "embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal," according to the Pantone Color Institure's website.
It also makes a fine accent color, says Penny Francis, designer and owner of Eclectic Home. "A little bit can go a long way," Francis says, "Because of its mix of red and brown, it can be added to many environments as a great pop, without being overbearing like a true red."
Try marsala in an accent wall, lampshade, pillows or any of the featured accessories.
