Marsala. I've been there.

Lots of chatter out in the design world about the Pantone Color of 2015.  Marsala.

Is it Burgundy? Brown? Red? 

Well ... I would like to state that I was either really late to the Burgundy bus or really early on the Marsala bus.

Okay ... this is REAL TIME blogging ... I just looked up the past colors and it seems 2007 was Chili Pepper.  Marsala is just a tad more brown.  And my Lee Jofa fabric was somewhere in between.

So I was right on target.  This room is Circa 2007.  And 2015 is too early for me to bring it back.  

Good news is I left the window treatments in our old house and now the new owners are on trend.  How lucky are they??

I am still in the brighter color mode.  Hence all the furniture you see above is now basking in a Rembrandt Red Glow.

"Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth."

So while I can appreciate the sentiment ... I think I agree with the English Room. I am feeling the Blues ... 

Yep ... these are the britches I stalked a woman in the Las Vegas Airport for.  I have no shame.  When you want something a weird trigger sets in and you go.  (okay, I just asked her where she got them.  I didn't take hers!) No denying!

How do you feel about Marsala?
