Color of the Year 2015

image: Pantone

It’s official! Pantone has revealed its Color of the Year for the world to see. According to their website: The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors.

A Tasteful Hue – 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.

A Hearty Yet Stylish Tone – Add elegance to any room by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces, accessories and paint. Marsala’s plush characteristics are enhanced when the color is applied to textured surfaces, making it an ideal choice for rugs and upholstered living room furniture.

The Versatility of Marsala

Equally appealing to men and women, Marsala is a stirring and flavorful shade for apparel and accessories, one that encourages color creativity and experimentation.

Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala is a great go-to color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows lips and hair.

Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors.

An earthy shade with a bit of sophistication, texture is the story in print and packaging. A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.

Statement Pieces

Sometimes all you need is one statement piece of artwork to complete a room. Large-scale works draw the eye and electrify the space they occupy. Here are some bright, bold examples:

Measuring 30” x 60”, this luminous work is eye-catchingly colorful and would add a burst of warmth to any room.

Seascape at Sunset by Cristina Stefan on Zatista.com

This kaleidoscopic abstract measures 36” x 48”. With its rich tones and soft lines, this work would compliment many color palettes.

City Lights by Thong Le on Zatista.com

The strong lines and bursts of color add visual interest to this large work, measuring 44” x 34”. The overall neutral palette keeps the neon shades fun and not overwhelming.

Sailing at Newport by William Kendall on Zatista.com

Measuring approximately 47” x 47”, this muted abstract may be large, but its subdued shades and rounded lines make for a soothing visual.

Reaching Summit by Andrea Rowbotham on Zatista.com

At 48” x 48” this mammoth work demands attention with its simplicity. The deep red tones stunningly contrast the single vibrant blue line.

Spirit by Chris Claussen on Zatista.com

This installation measures 47” x 100”. The geometric patterning and lively hues coupled with sheer size would add energy to any location.

Dancing Circles in 32 by Rosemary Pierce on Zatista.com

This multi-hued figural work measures 35” x 45”. The brilliant blues and splashes of brighter tones provide many color options when designing a space.

Icon #4 by Steve Alderton on Zatista.com

Measuring 40” x 36”, this lovely abstract adds a burst of resplendent purple and gentle energy to a room, while also maintaining a neutral base.

Meadow Saffron by Lisa Carney on Zatista.com

Of course, photographs can be statement pieces as well. This quiet image measures 47” x 31”. With blue overtones and contrasts of dark and light, this work draws focus in a reserved and dignified manner.

The Point of No Return by Dan Lavric on Zatista.com

For the bold, or for those that desire a commanding art presence in the room, large-scale works like these make a perfect statement.

Art Basel Redux

If you’re one of the lucky birds who flies south for the winter, hopefully you were able to indulge your artistic side by visiting the annual Art Basel in Miami: the 44th installment was a memorable one, occurring December 4th to 7th in the heart of Miami Beach. Some highlights are pictured here.

Miami isn’t exactly considered the art capital of the world, but it certainly has its own eccentric flair that distinguishes it from every other city: white, sandy beaches, Versace’s extravagant hotel, palm trees shading Cuban food joints overlooking the ocean. It may not have the makes to inspire history’s grandest artists like Paris, Rome and Madrid do, but it’s the place for a great weekend-long party; and it also boasts its fair share of art museums, a Cuban history museum and even a Holocaust museum (maybe for a cloudier, more somber day).

Modern and contemporary art lovers, this is your haven: just take a look around at the omnipresent Deco architecture. This year, the Art Basel in Miami attracted approximately 70,000 visitors and showcased art from over 250 galleries across the world (according to their official site). The show is comprised of nine sectors, each which exhibits work that reflects a specific theme or falls under a certain category. The sectors are listed below:

  • GALLERIES- Feast your eyes on thousands of Modern and contemporary art pieces from more than 200 of the world’s most renowned and recognized art galleries. You would have seen paintings, drawings, structures, installations, photography and videos created by 4,000 of the world’s most talented artists.
  • NOVA- The Nova sector will introduce you to never-before-seen pieces. Here, galleries present what’s new: each gallery showcases one, two or three new artists toting new works that were created in the last few years.
  • POSITIONS- Curators, critics and collectors all come together to discover new talent: Positions allows a platform for a single artist to show one major project.
  • EDITION- Leading publishers of editioned works, prints, and multiples collaborate with artists and then present the literary/artistic outcome here.
  • KABINETT- Comprised of works like art-historical showcases, thematic group exhibitions and solo shows, artists in the Kabinett sector are chosen from their gallery to present separately from the group.
  • PUBLIC- In collaboration with the Bass Museum of Art, art show-goers can admire outdoor sculptures and witness performances in Collins Park.
  • SURVEY- For all you history buffs, here is your one-stop-shop for art-history-inspired projects: feast your eyes on representations of cultures, generations and places past.
  • FILM- Not that the title doesn’t it away, but here you can enjoy films by artists, about other artists.
  • MAGAZINES- Catch up on your reading; view magazines from art publications from around the world.
