Marsala: How to use Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015 in Your Home

Marsala: How to use Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015 in Your Home

Global color expert Pantone has selected marsala as the color of the year for 2015. If you think red wine and chicken in a rich mushroom sauce when you hear the word “marsala”, you are on the right track. Marsala was, in fact, chosen as the color of the year for its warmth, earthiness, and versatility.

“This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute Executive Director.

At the Bath & Kitchen Showplace, we are, of course, primarily interested in how this color will look in the bathrooms and kitchens of our customers.

With a little imagination, marsala can be a bold and lovely addition to your most used interior spaces.

Here are a few ideas for how to incorporate the 2015 color of the year into your bathroom or kitchen:


Since marsala is such a powerful color, using it in your bathroom can make a dramatic statement. Use it on your walls, or go all out with a marsala colored tub. If you’re not that brave, you can still use marsala as an accent color. Think shower curtain, towels, rug, or accessories.



Red tones are believed to stimulate your appetite, so your kitchen is the perfect place to use marsala! From setting out bowl of deep red cherries to painting your entire kitchen island this deep red color, the only limit is the level of your bravery. Again, you can use marsala on your walls, or choose a marsala tile backsplash, cabinets, or appliances. Another idea is to use it as an accent color – for instance with your lighting.


These are just a handful of examples of how to use marsala in your home’s bathroom or kitchen. For more design inspiration, or for help with an upcoming remodel, contact the experts at the Bath & Kitchen Showroom.
