Each year we wait in anticipation to see which hue has been deemed colour of the year by Pantone and work out how we can best use it in our homes. Last year we had feminine splashes of pretty radiant orchid, so we were intrigued to see that this year, robust and earthy marsala had been selected as flavour of the month.

With its warm and natural tones, it was easy to incorporate marsala into our homes during the winter months, whereas spring and summer seems trickier. However, this is the colour of the year not the season, so we’ve found some gorgeous seasonal products to show you how the shade can look stunning with your summer decor too!
