marsala la la la

i get excited about the announcement of the pantone color of the year (i guess that makes me a design nerd?!).   i love seeing how this one uber-influential color finds its way into all of the clothing, advertising and products that surround us. 
well, i felt really connected to 2013's emerald, and in small doses i also really liked this year's radiant orchid, but i am surprised by marsala- it just feels soooo neutral!  my first thought was,  "that's the lipstick color i've been wearing since high school." 
it just doesn't feel fun or fresh, but i'm not complaining.  i'm still looking forward to spotting marsala throughout the year.

I was a bit unpleasantly surprised by this choice as well. I'm sure it will grow on me this year! I've LOVED the last several years' picks!
