color | marsala | pantone color of the year

will 2015 be a year of contrasts?

if color forecasts are any indication, then maybe so.

color authority pantone, a division of x-rite that provides professional color standards for the design industries, named marsala as the color of the year for 2015.

marsala is a color that exudes confidence and stability

could it be coincidental that sherwin-williams and pantone both featured red and green in their marketing materials?

or, that berry red is one of the colors that benjamin moore suggests to combine with guilford green.

when you mix complementary colors like red and green together, you create brown.

pantone is receiving mixed reviews for choosing a brownish color like marsala as the color of the year for 2015.

PS.  ppg pittsburgh paints just announced that blue paisley is their 2015 COTY (color of the year).

could no trend direction be the trend direction?
