As someone who appreciates a good Aussie Red, I couldn’t be more delighted by the Pantone colour of the year for 2015! MARSALA, a style of fortified wine, this rich new pantone is like a juicy deep red grape with natural brown and earthy undertones.

This dramatic and vibrant colour can make a great addition to your interior decorating palette, adding a feeling of warmth and luxury to your living space.

Incorporate Marsala into your new Integrity home, as a feature wall, or add accessories- candles, vases, bowls, luxurious bedroom linens, even a grand sofa.

When teamed with other warm colours such as golden yellows, reds and browns, Marsala creates a comfy and traditional atmosphere.  Make it more contemporary by pairing with warm greys and taupes. Pantone has also recommended turquoise, teals and vibrant blues for more adventurous home owners.

Since it is a strong colour, Marsala will work best in rooms that have plenty of natural light, and works well with bright whites.

Your experienced interior designers and colour consultants at INTEGRITY NEW HOMES-HUNTER VALLEY can assist you to create the right look and feel for your new home. Time to make the neighbours jealous!
