Pantone’s color of the year for 2015 is Marsala: a beautiful shade of red that is neither too bold nor too shy. It works as the perfect complimentary color for many AC Pacific furniture selections, so there is no reason why you shouldn’t incorporate this versatile hue into your existing decor with a few well placed accent pieces.

 

 

Create a pop of color using Marsala with rich repeat patterns, like a zig-zag or peacock rug, or filigree work pillow. Marsala provides majesty to various textures as well, including frosted or polished glass, dupioni, or soft, chunky knits. Finish off the look with aged golds, subtle oranges, and soft grays. Our favorite pieces to style with this scheme are our Carolyn accent armchair, the soft Lucas sofa with chaise, and our Presley collection in rich wood tones.

If you wish to go bold with Marsala, consider using it on an accent wall. The color can stand on its own, or can provide a contrasting backdrop to a gallery frames.

Take it a step further, if you dare, by painting the whole room in Marsala and accenting with white wainscoting, window trim, and moulding.

Our 480 Bedroom Set is perfect for a Marsala dominated bedroom. A light floor and intricate rug – with Marsala tints, of course – provide an elegant base for a bold solid wall. Use a light or neutral bedding set to offset the walls. Toss on a few Marsala tinted accent pillows to help tie in the color, or even opt for a bedding set incorporating hints of the color. Employ light colored, simple window coverings to help open up the room.

Marsala is sure to bring bold elegance to your home, no matter what your decor style may be. Happy decorating!
