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?
