This Week’s Most Coveted

Pantone has officially dubbed the sultry Marsala as the color of the year.  The red wine, burgundy-esque color evokes images of its earthy roots, while exuding a refined class and sophistication.  It blends well with muted tones, as well as bold and light neutrals, as it is a universally flattering color for fashion, beauty, and interiors.  The color is also appealing to men and women alike.  The color is both dramatic and grounding at the same time.  Check out the inspiration board for Pantone’s favorite color of 2015.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Pierre Hardy
