Every year the Pantone Colour Institute announces their colour of the year, and this year we are happily surprised with the introduction of Marsala. Here are some simple tips below on how to easily incorporate the warm moroccan tones of Marsala.

1. Make Marsala an accent colour

You don’t need to spend ten’s of thousands of dollars to change the look and feel of your room. Incorporating Marsala can be as simple as introducing accent pieces like, a throw rug, cushions, or other minimal ornamental pieces which combined give the room a cohesive colour theme.

3.  Accent furniture is the key

Go bold by updating or buying a new piece of furniture. Whether you just have the couch cushions recovered, or are in the market to buy a high back armchair –  a burgundy rich colour tone will surely be a centrepiece in your home. Just remember that accent furniture is designed to stand out and be a centrepiece of the room, so try not to use Marsala in other furniture pieces in the same room.
