Marsala: The New Neutral

Marsala Home Decor Finds on a Budget

In this weekly column, I'm sharing high-style tips and finds that are budget-friendly, too! This week, I'm sharing tips and items to bring Pantone's Color of the Year home. Find more decor ideas on my blog, A Vintage Splendor.

Marsala has elicited so much vibrant discussion for being such a muted hue as soon as it was announced as Pantone's Color of the Year. Although it's not loved by the design community as much as last year's Radiant Orchid, it is much easier to incorporate this hue at home. Marsala is a reddish-brown that will translate well to interiors and decor because it's a rich and inviting hue that commands attention. Whether you're looking to add a new neutral color or giving your space a makeover, Marsala will work well in a variety of spaces and aesthetics.
I prefer a neutral base for most interiors with pops of color for a fresh look. With Marsala, I would mix in bright pinks and touches of brass and gold to give the space a warm yet confident feel. If you're looking to try out Marsala, here are 10 picks to achieve the year's color without splurging. Plus, I'd love to know what you think of Marsala.
