My Mom knew the colour of the year before I did. About a week ago, I saw her knitting a scarf, and I said “Mom, that’s such an old, dated colour, are you really going to knit a scarf in that colour?”
“Well, I found this yarn and decided it would be fun to make one, she said.”
My mother doesn’t even like red.
So I’ve decided that if you’re around me, you can’t help but be on the pulse of colour as well because it’s the air I breathe : ).
I’ve certainly noticed Marsala in fashion, however there it’s called Burgundy. However, let’s keep an open mind shall we?
After all, what makes any new colour fresh is the colour combination. Like this mandarin orange and
burgundy knit dress:
And this burgundy and bright red bib necklace: Wonderful for Christmas.
Pantone’s colour of the year in my interpretation should be one where most people are nodding “Yes, that’s right”, or “Dang, I should have guessed that!!”
A colour that is already permeating in our homes that we are embracing. In the past, that’s how it’s been.
However, this year it seems to be a prediction of colour to come? I am hard pressed to find an interior with a fresh use of Marsala because, well it’s not fresh, that’s for sure, however searches to find an interior done in orange and red which would feel more fresh came up empty handed. Here’s what my friend Lisa at Lisa Mende Design wrote about Marsala.
Mmmmmm, one place I love red is velvet. But even this red (above) is a little too bright to be considered Marsala!
What say you? Are you feeling it? Here’s my take on the trends of 2014 and what I see for 2015 on Centsational Girls blog this week!
