If we think back over the past several years we can see how other colors of the year faired. 2012 brought us Tangerine Tango and it did seem as though Tangerine was everywhere that year. 2013 brought us Emerald Green and in 2014 Radiant Orchid took center stage. Obviously some colors lend themselves better to certain items and have more of an overall impact. All of these colors appeared in fashion and beauty as well as interior design but were not necessarily pervasive in all areas. We didn’t see a lot of Radiant Orchid cars last year for example, but I bet we will see quite a few Marsala cars this year.
Eiseman says they attempt to find a color that will leave a lasting mark on a wide variety of industries. Sephora, the makeup company has already committed to a limited edition line of makeup in this year’s favorite hue as they have in the past. This color is great for lipstick, eye shadow, nail polish, even hair color.
Men will find this color choice permeating into their ties, sport’s jackets, sport shirts, handkerchiefs, briefcases etc. Women will find it in clothing, jewelry, and all accessories. It’s a versatile shade that can be mixed and matched with what is already in your closet. Eiseman says one of the strengths of this year’s color is how well it can be combined with other colors and neutrals. She says “it’s a color that you can mix with what you already own…You can add just a touch of it…It is not the color that swallows the world.”
In the home furnishing department you will see it in paint choices, throw pillows, placemats, bedding or any kind of accent piece for the home or office. I personally like a color with a bit more punch. I am however, not upset with this color choice because I think it is a choice that will be a mainstay—not a trendy, gimmicky color that will be out as soon as it was in. No need to worry about purchasing accessories and outfits in this color because as a neutral it will stand the test of time. So this color is a thumbs UP for me.
