Goodbye Radiant Orchid, and maybe you already forgot about the Emerald. Welcome Marsala, Pantone Color of The Year 2015.

"While PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, the captivating 2014 color of the year, encouraged creativity and innovation, Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

This year's shade appeals to men and women, and is flattering on many skin tones, "a great go-to color for beauty," Pantone said. Within a few weeks of the announcement, the color typically begins to pop up on products from evening gowns to coffee makers.

A rich contrasting color, Marsala is ideal for use in graphic design and packaging. Eye-catching, but not overwhelming or bright, consumers are immediately drawn to the hue, making it an alluring shade at point-of-purchase. As packaging becomes increasingly more artistic, Marsala will be a natural fit for both high- and low-tech materials, including on-shelf periodicals as well as printed assets, like calendars and stationery.
