Every year, a color of the year is crowned by Pantone, the global color authority. This year, Marsala has been selected and it’s the color to look for in fashion, home décor, cosmetics, and even appliances and luggage! Marsala is a robust, red-infused brown that evokes a warm and inviting feeling. In contrast to colors selected in years past, it can be easily incorporated into your wardrobe or décor as a focal color or a complimentary shade.color of the year
