In 2014, Pantone announced Radiant Orchid as the color of the year, and while the lilac-y tone was fun and bright, we are excited to see more of the 2015 Pantone color — Marsala. Marsala is a warm, rustic brown-hued red that has a versatile and timeless feel that goes great in just about any space. Here are a few fun finds:

Marsala plays well with others! In this living room, the earthy reds of the couch and rug are the perfect compliment to the blue and gold elements.

It also looks great against this sophisticated white palate — you can find hints of Marsala in tons of gorgeous oriental rugs we have here in the showroom!

Marsala can be a vibrant accent wall that adds some POP without being overbearing.

And it can also work as a more subtle splash of color, as with this striped throw.

We love the way this deep red tub livens up this bathroom.

A color that evokes so much spice and richness goes perfectly in the kitchen, too!
