Pantone mistaken, but just a tad off from soothing


Marsala is not the color of 2015, but Pantone was on the right track. We are looking for a color:

  • equally appealing to men and women 
  • flattering against many skin tones
  • an earthy shade with a bit of sophistication
  • conveying organic nature, but adding a sheen of luxury
  • a trace of zinc for industrial design
  • rooty, yet hinting of a satisfying meal
  • don't drink it
  • guess again. It's still not Marsala. 
  • found at CVS, it's not Pepto Bismal, but same price range
  • design uses include popular decor scheme for mammogram offices
  • both matte and sheen finishes look great on ankles
  • not fortified to last long ocean voyages
  • relief from the dang chiggers
  • if doesn't work for chigger itch relief, might try sherry, port, or madiera taken internally
  • causes a cooling sensation as it evaporates

Dang. I was just at CVS and maybe could have figured this out if I'd only read this first.
