Marsala





                                                      "Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness."

                   Marsala is (drum roll please) the



So have a glass of it, and wrap yourself up in its warmth and richness. It is a great leather color.




If you were to mix the paint color of Marsala, you would need to mix some green into the red. It's mostly red with a little green. Green is the opposite, or complement of red on the color wheel and therefore mutes it. And that's the beauty of marsala: it is a muted red, soft and ruddy. So it's red with a bit of white and a bit of black and a bit of green.
