Every December, Pantone announces its upcoming Color of the Year, and every year we can’t wait to start searching for images and creating lightboxes inspired by the new hue.
This year’s color, Marsala, is a dusky burgundy that draws its name and its shade from the Marsala wines of Italy. Its deep, reddish tones are perfect for the cranberries, cackling fires, and cuddly sweaters of the upcoming winter season, and they’ll guide us all the way to autumn 2015, when leaves the color of Marsala begin to fall.
