Pantone Color Institute, the colour of the year for 2015 is marsala.
Marsala is a reddish-brown colour that Pantone calls “a smooth, rich, earthy wine tone” inspired by the a city called Marsala in Sicily, Italy.
I think that adding accents of marsala would be a great way to add a bit of this fashionable, warm colour to your home décor without adding too much of a strong colour.
Here's a peek at the sample from Pantone. Marsala is colour number 18-1438.
Panatone says, "Nurturing and fulfilling, Marsala is a natural fit for the kitchen and dining room – making it ideal for tabletop, small appliances and linens throughout the home." I like it though I realize it is not for everyone. It is exactly the hit of red that I might choose to add if I were redecorating my family room or kitchen.
Today's post, number 27 in my 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS, is therefore dedicated to a few lovely marsala-coloured coffee mugs. Because I do not actually own all of these mugs, I am relying on the colour representation delivered to me online. I hope that these colours are true in real life. Please let me know if you experience anything otherwise.
At the top of this page, I've shared a pair of Starbucks' Stacking coffee mugs. Starbucks calls the colour mulberry but I think that it is a fine stand in as a marsala-coloured mug. It is a 2013 mug that is readily available from Amazon by clicking right here.
Pfaltzgraff's Everyday Calico Mug, with a checkered pattern at the top, is of varied colours, including a reddish brown marsala. Priced at just $5.99 on Amazon, it would be a very affordable way to add a bit of this year's colour to your home decor. You can find it by clicking right here.
Then there is Burton & Burton's inspirational Marsala Dad themed mug. It's a handsome choice, perfect for Father's Day and dad's birthday. You can find it on Amazon here.
