For those of us who remember the burgundy of bygone years, Marsala is more of the same. Sort of a faded burgundy. From Pantone’s press: Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.
Marsala is quite a change from the past few years, which were clear, bright colors. Marsala is interesting in that it has a lot of green in it and also some blue. As I wandered around Halcyon House Antiques on Saturday, I spotted a number of items that fit into the Marsala color range.
There is not really anything that we have that I think is the true MARSALA color as proscribed by the Pantone Color Institute, but some of these come close.
