will 2015 be a year of contrasts?
if color forecasts are any indication, then maybe so. color authority pantone, a division of x-rite that provides professional color standards for the design industries, named marsala as the color of the year for 2015.
‘marsala is a color that exudes confidence and stability’
-leatrice eiseman, executive director of the pantone color institute®

could it be coincidental that sherwin-williams and pantone both featured red and green in their marketing materials?
or, that berry red is one of the colors that benjamin moore suggests to combine with guilford green.
when you mix complementary colors like red and green together, you create brown.

pantone is receiving mixed reviews for choosing a color with brown undertones, like marsala, as the color of the year for 2015.
could no trend direction be the trend direction for 2015?
