pantone color of the year - marsala

When I saw that Pantone had chosen their color of the year for 2015 to be Marsala, my mind instantly started swirling with ideas.  There are SO many different color palettes that you can create using this color, and every single one of them screams romance.  It may look like a bit of a rust red color, but I chose to use it as an inspirational color and design a few inspiration boards using the color hues in this color, incorporating the deep berry reds that are also in this color family, with burgundy, aubergine, maroons, and created a few different boards for you to use as inspiration for your wedding, if you'd like to incorporate this color!

Also, back in September, I wrote a post about the 2015 Color Trends ... click here if you'd like to read more about where Pantone thinks color designs are headed for next year!

There were so many combinations that I loved, that I decided to split these into two separate posts.  So, today you'll see part one, and tomorrow I will share part two with you!

Isn't this color just a gorgeous one to use for your wedding?? I hope that seeing these boards will inspire you with your own wedding to use a color that you may not have thought of before ... and I'd love to hear what your favorite combination of colors is as well!

Happy Planning!
