Hello Everyone and Happy New year! I’m Sarah from Just The Bee’s Knees back again to share another inspiring mood board with you this month.
With the start of a new year upon us, I love to look ahead at the trends that are forecasted and dream up exciting spaces! Last year I talked about 2014 color of the year, Radiant Orchid, and although I really liked the brightness and liveliness of last years violet hued color, I’m super excited about Pantone’s pick for 2015: Marsala! (Interested in the Sherwin-Williams’ pick for 2015? Check it out here.)
I’m loving this warm, earthy burgundy tone, especially paired with soft blues, greens and turquoise accents that have been so popular in home decor. I pulled some colors from the image above and interpreted them into my mood board this month!
How beautiful is that rug?! And the warmth of the Marsala toned drapes looks just gorgeous paired with the plush, turquoise velvet sofa. As you can see, you only need a touch of Marsala accents to bring this trend into your home. If you don’t have soft blues or greens in your home, Marsala also looks great with warm browns and grays.
Let’s take a look at some inspiring images of interiors that use this color beautifully!
This color is one that I think works well in small doses, but it also looked fabulous enveloping an entire room! Warm, rich Marsala painted walls make these spaces feel so inviting and cozy, don’t they?! Marsala is so versatile and right on trend with the Moroccan Chic look we have been seeing lately. This color can also be found in a lot of the exotic Killim rugs that have become wildly popular again.
