Pantone’s Color Of The Year Says A Lot About Our National Mood


Pantone picked its 15th annual color of the year which is supposed to be indicative of our national mood. This year’s color is named Marsala after the Sicilian wine. Yes, our mood is all about the booze and we’re really not sure that’s a good sign. Pantone’s Executive Director had this to say:

Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.

Pantone’s experts described the color as one that “enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability.” Indeed. Wine often makes me feel smarter and more confident. Stable? Not so much.
