Marsala: Pantone Colour of 2015

Welcome back to the blog!  Its been a funny old week with my youngest being poorly off school for much of it, and poor Mabel has gone into season so she has been refused snuggles on the sofa – very tricky when she glares at you with those big brown eyes…


So, with only half a week at work all I could do is prioritise current orders, which involved some fun design work for a Bristol City FC layout, a vibrant festival style and a New York city personal photo plan.

As yet I can’t share these designs with you so I thought I’d brighten up this grey Sunday with a sneaky peak at the Pantone colour of 2015, MARSALA, from a wedding angle.  With so many gorgeous boards on Pinterest, like the one below made by KnotsVilla, you can instantly visualise this colour integrated into your wedding styling.

This earthy red shade is super versatile utilised as a very soft tone or alternatively punched up for a drammatic edge.  Its not too girly, its not too masculine and certainly a great shade to suit all skin tones.  The season you marry will affect which colours you would use to pair with Marsala – dusty peaches and soft greens in spring – or combine with rich golds for the most elegant of winter weddings.

At I can adapt most of our designs to colourings to suit you big day.  Below are some samples in Marsala tones – the colours easily modified in strength to perfectly compliment requirements, be it personal photo, classic damask, or contemporary typographic styling you opt for, our hand finishing in either silver or gold compliments the styling perfectly.


If there are any designs you would like to see in a Marsala tone on my website please email me at and I’ll be happy to alter the design to suit the tone required, and email you a visual.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. I am off to do some baking with my girls, a coffee and walnut cake – perfect Sunday comfort food.

Thank you for stopping by, Jane
