Pantone (the authority on color), recently announced the official color of 2015 – marsala. Pantone describes marsala as: "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." http://www.pantone.com/pages/index.aspx?pg=21167

Freshly back from Miami, I had an amazing time getting to spend a week working on a design & staging project for Condé Nast. The team was tasked with styling & staging a striking modern waterfront property – our color palate for the rooms was to primarily focus on red, black & white colors, with some rich chocolate & taupe colors for other areas. I had a fantastic experience shopping throughout Miami, picking out beautiful sofas, rugs, chairs, vintage pieces & accessories – and had the pleasure of working with some awesome, fun, & very hard working people! I was able to snap some photos of our work in progress (unfortunately, a camera phone just doesn't do the project justice!) (And another example of why listing agents should always hire a professional photographer to take the listing photos, rather than do it themselves….)
