5 home accessories you can score in Pantone’s Color of the Year

Marsala is the word of the week after Pantone announced the red-brown hue as the 2015 Color of the Year. 

Whether you need to buy a holiday gift for a decorating guru or are looking to give your own home a dash of the cozy, earthy — and sure to be very hot — shade, here are five picks for decorative home accessories.



Give an entire room a Marsala makeover with an area rug that graduates from dark to light at its center (Loloi Hamilton Rug, from $126.99 at Wayfair.com).



Shed some light on the situation with a pulled-together table lamp that complements modern décor schemes (Small Modern Table Lamp, $39.99 at Lamps Plus).



Scoop up a pair of these vases in varying heights for an attention-grabbing look on an entry or side table (Rossu Bottle Vases, from $49.95 at Crate & Barrel).

Coffee maker


Get your Marsala fix — while satisfying your caffeine fix, too — with this 12-cup coffee maker in just the right red (Black and Decker 12-Cup coffee maker, $80 at Amazon).



Use this set of three coordinating trays for just about anything in the home — fragrances, barware or any other objects you’re proud to display (Essential Graphic Coral Trays, $186.99 for a set of 3 from art.com).
