According to Pantone: “Complex and full-bodied without overpowering, Marsala provides a unifying element for interior spaces. Add elegance to any room by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces, accessories and paint. Marsala’s plush characteristics are enhanced when the colour is applied to textured surfaces, making it an ideal choice for rugs and upholstered living room furniture. Nurturing and fulfilling, Marsala is a natural fit for the kitchen and dining room – making it ideal for tabletop, small appliances and linens throughout the home. The hue will be especially prominent in striping and floral patterns found in printed placemats, dinnerware, bedding and throws.” Read more about Marsala colour for 2015 and look at some examples of how marsala is used

Feng shui colours

Colour is such a personal preference. The rule of thumb is to follow your own taste and preference. If you want to know what is your feng shui colour, find out your element and then you’ll know your colour. Your feng shui element depends on the year you were born (see the 5 elements chart below). There are five elements: water, wood/tree, fire, earth and metal. For example, if your element is earth, then your feng shui colours are earth colours such as yellow, orange, browns, etc. There are also supporting colours for each element (water supports wood/tree, wood supports fire, fire supports earth, earth supports metal and metal supports water) – so you can use these colours in conjunction with your primary colour/s.
Water element colours: blue, black
Wood/tree element colours: green
Fire element colours: red, pink
Earth element colours: yellow, earthy colours
Metal element colours: silver, gold, grey
