The Wall Street Journal has announced that the Pantone 2015 Color of the Year is Marsala. It’s described as “earthy,” with red and brown tones reminiscent of the 1970s. Kind of a dark dusty rose. Soon, you’ll be seeing this color in fashion, housewares, makeup and, maybe, weddings.

Marsala is VERY different from this year’s Radiant Orchid, a feminine pinky-purple that seemed designed for spring events. Marsala has a richness that will definitely work for fall weddings.

I’m not sure what the Pantone Color Institute is up to but I’m not a fan. What do you think? Is this color a hit or a miss?
