First, what is Pantone? “Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of color across a variety of industries”…
So what makes a color, the color of the year? From Pantone’s Press Release-
"Marsala was a hit on the Spring 2015 runways",
"Marsala is an incredibly versatile color for beauty",
"Complex and full-bodies without overpowering, Marsala provides a unifying element for interior spaces."
Second, when I hear the word Marsala, I think of Chicken Marsala made with Marsala wine .. don’t you? Full of chicken and mushrooms in a Marsala wine sauce, it's making my mouth water!
