As 2014 comes to an end and we tally the most popular baby and puppy names of the year, one company has already started looking ahead to 2015. 

Pantone, the leading authority on hues used in paint, fabrics and manufacturing, announced their Color of the Year Thursday. The big winner? A rich Marsala red, which Pantone described as "a naturally robust and earthy" color in a statement.

"Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal," Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute said. "This hearty-yet-stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors."

Brands like Gap, Sephora, Pottery Barn and more have taken notice by releasing items in this unique shade.


You can pick up Gap's 1969 Always Skinny Cords and Buffalo Checkered Scarf, priced at $44.99 and $25.99.


Add Crate and Barrel's Linet 18-inch Pillow to your home decor for $34.97.


Brew a cup of coffee using the Keuring K400 machine in Marsala, available early 2015.


Snag Kendra Scott's Danielle earrings in Goldstone for $60.


Sephora is getting ready to release its Marsala Layering Lip Collection and Shimmering Marsala Cheek Trio, available December 2014.


Take in the color as you snack with Pottery Barn's Multi Pattern Snack Bowls. A set of four runs at $35.50.

From emerald green to mimosa yellow, take a look back at the shades that made a splash in years prior.
