Marsala the Colour of 2015

Marsala is the new colour for 2015. It’s an atmospheric hue; giving a room an immediate warm moody look with its deep and woody undertones. Can be used in either a contemporary or traditional design. A great accent colour to add to the rooms currently in vogue, of greys and oatmeal, with marsala cushions, rugs or fabrics. If your using it on your walls, keep in mind the best rooms to use a dark colour are the north facing or generally rooms that are naturally dark, it creates warmth, atmosphere and a bit of romance.

Marsala walls, in gloss, to reflect light.  It gives the impression the room is actually bigger.  Paint available from our showroom.
