Social Media went crazy today with Pantone’s announcement of its 2015 Color of the Year, Marsala. Some embraced it immediately, while others were simply not feeling it.

According to Pantone, “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

Although the name conjures up recipes of Chicken Marsala in my head, Iย can see many uses for this color, whether it be in textiles, automotive, fashion and yes, even tile.

What are you thoughts?
