What are your thoughts on Pantone’s 2015 colour choice of the year?
Marsala as described by Pantone is a ‘subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.’ The colour derived from Marsala wine is an earthy and robust shade, which works well with neutrals. Paired with cool greys and warmer taupes it will allow the true beauty of Marsala to shine through. Pantone recommends using the shade within accent pieces, accessories and paint. The full bodied colour works well within textured surfaces, such as carpets and upholstery.
If you are feeling daring this year why not take a look at our carpet ranges matched to Pantones 2015 colour of the year.
Options 288 in Carmine is made with a blend of wool and polypropylene combining the durability of modern fibres with all the resilience and softness of wool. This particular shade would work beautifully in a hall due to its hard wearing nature and darker colour palette.
Dolce in Boardeaux is a 100% bleach cleanable carpet and is the perfect no-fuss stain resistant carpet for today's busy and active lifestyles. This particular shade is ideal for the stairs due to its slightly flecked appearance.
Athena Saxony in Aubergine is a sumptuously-soft Saxony carpet ideal for the bedroom due to its luxuriously soft fibres. This particular shade will provide a warm inviting space in your home.
