Marsala – Pantone Colour Of The Year

2015 is the year of ‘Marsala’. It’s full-bodied and stylish, and as Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute says, it’s a tone that is “universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishing and interiors”. Bang!

A grounded statement colour or a strong accent to other colours, this rich, earthy tone really nails it.

Here’s a few ways you can join the marsala colour hype, thanks to a range of fashion, beauty and home wares retailers at Uni Hill Factory Outlets.

Dress Marsala

Be bold and take this universally flattering colour by the horns. Add confidence and elegance to your look with this robust shade – whether it be with a striking tote bag, cute hat, bold accessories or some hot new pumps.

For the guys, spice up your suit with a slick new tie in a Marsala-hue; matched perfectly with a crisp white shirt and tan accessories.

Make it your makeup colour

The beauty of this daring hue is that it’s flattering no matter what your skin tone. Spice up your makeup look with a dark, rich lip shade – day or night – or give your manicure a sophisticated makeover with bold red-wine inspired nail colour.

Add a touch of burgundy to your cheeks with a rich blush if you’re not ready to fully embrace the audacious tone.

Just like a rich Bordeaux red, the beauty of this bold and welcoming colour is the warmth it adds to the home; country elegance or bold city chic alike.

Divinely matched with textured wares, add a splash of colour to your living room with a bold throw or spice up a clean, crisp bedspread finished with some deep-red cushions. For those that dare, furniture in this shade adds warmth and comfort to any living space.
