Marsala for your Office Life

“Sophisticated and glamorous, yet earthy and organic. Warm, and universally appealing. Dramatic in an unexpected way. Full-bodied and fulfilling.” This is how the LA Showroom describes the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year, Marsala. Yes, Marsala is the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year, and we’d like to offer some ways to integrate it into your office life.

First, you might be wondering: what exactly is the color Marsala? It’s depicted below, and can be best described as a red and brown shade mix. Here are three ways you can represent this color well around the office.

Fashion

Marsala was selected as the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year because of its versatility in appealing to a multitude of ages, genders, and lifestyles. What better way to support the color at your office than by wearing it? Women can sport this color in a variety of ways, from boots or a scarf to a sharp-looking dress. Men can also integrate Marsala into fashion by wearing it in a tie, polo shirt or a button-down to the office. 

Business

While you look great wearing Marsala, your company can also stand out with this premier Pantone color. Try integrating the color Marsala into your next presentation or report. The color makes for a great heading, and can be refreshing when you feel you have over-used your standard black fonts. Marsala is also a strong accent color and can pair well with a variety of other colors to help your logo and branding stand out more. To use Marsala, just enter the RGB values of 150,79, and 76.

Celebrations

You can’t truly celebrate the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year without getting to celebrate for yourself. Before it was the color of the year, Marsala’s roots date back to 1773 where the color could be found in Italian red wine. You might want to enjoy a glass of Marsala wine when you get that promotion, or finally close that deal you have been working on. For non-drinkers, a little Marsala wine makes a great ingredient in cooking (think Chicken Marsala) – and a special meal prepared for the office could help add to a very colorful celebration.
