Pantone Marsala

MarsalaThis week we highlight Pantone 18-1438 (“Marsala”) – Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year.  Marsala and other shades of wine and plum have been popular wedding colors for holiday and winter weddings for years.   The earthy shades within the color resemble a winey red-brown.  Marsala is rich and robust and looks flattering against many skin tones and as an ink choice, against many paper colors.  It is an interesting color on its own and contrasts beautifully metallics, neutrals and pastels.  Shades of Marsala are incorporated into romantic floral motif and paired with metallic gold ink in our popular “Watercolor Wreath” invitation design shown above. For more inspiration on your upcoming wedding, check out Cardinal & Straw’s Facebook and Pinterest pages for your wedding invitation suite or shop our Etsy site now:
