Color Story: Marsala

4

Pantone has spoken, and the color of the year is a far cry from last year’s Radiant Orchid! This year’s winning shade is described as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red color”, and has a fitting name to boot: Marsala. This beautiful color is a cross between a cool burgundy and a warm terracotta. We can’t wait to see how designers and decorators use this color in the coming year!

Mad About Plaid Inspiration

8

Lumberjack style is so in right now, to the point that the phrase lumbersexual has been coined as a way of describing a man who dresses with an outdoorsy and rugged aesthetic. We’re wondering if the obsession with this new-era lumberjack has less to do with the actual man, and more to do with his pattern of choice: plaid. Well ladies can rock a plaid flannel just as well as men can! And here’s proof:
bold plaid coat = outfit-maker
