Marsala Pantone Color of the Year 2015

It's been announced! The Hot Color for 2015 has been predicted to be Marsala, an earthy red-brown and sophisticated tone. Similar to burgundy and maroon, I know many of you think Marsala will only fit fall and winter season weddings. Here, I have paired this bolder tone with the soft romantic hues I know so many of you love. Peach, blush, dusty rose and gold all pair wonderful with Marsala. Marsala encourages design to layer tones and I LOVE that! I always encourage our couples to broaden their original color palette and not just use two or three, but to layer them. If you adore this color, but are worried it will dominate, take some of these ideas as inspiration. A pop in your floral design, perhaps some stunning after the wedding lingerie, invitation liners, or a breath taking vintage sofa for your bridal portraits or memorable lounge at your reception. There are so many lovely options! We'd love to hear your feedback on this year's choice! I'm still partial to 2013's Emerald, but I think I can be persuaded with this elegant hue.
