Marsala… Color of the year 2015


Released by Pantone, the official color for 2015 is Marsala. What does this mean exactly? Well whatever you want it to. For me it usually starts with a nail polish and then I might decide to adopt Marsala in other ways around the home or in fashion.

My initial thought was UGH…. Weird pooey shade of burgundy wine. yack. And then thought hmm… I already own a polish in this color so perhaps embrace Marsala in that way.

I certainly approve of Marsala in the cooking sense… love me some indian spicy yum yum…. Ok no, I can’t talk about Indian food right now, currently paying for recent sins of caloric suicide over the holidays, at even the thought of butter chicken or naan, I would be guaranteed to gain another ounce or two. No. Only Marsala protein shakes will be discussed in this post.

I’ll keep you up to date where I might dabble in the new baby color of 2015.



Shall we reminisce for a moment on years past, 2014 gave us Radiant Orchid, honestly never really got there, borderline bubblegum. Now 2013 was Emerald, yes yes yes loved it, and in 2012 Tangerine Tango, perfection.
