Color of the Year for 2023!

COLOUR TRENDS 2023

Viva Magenta is Pantone’s Colour of the Year!

Viva Magenta! The top colour forecasted for 2023 has verve, and that is exactly what we need right now. Pantone© has declared the colour to set a trend this year because it merges the warm strength of the natural world with the rich, open horizons of the digital world. Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, joyous and optimistic, powerful and empowering. It is assertive, but not aggressive; dynamic and bold, but fun; warm but also cool. The Red colour family is an energetic group, encouraging experimentation and self expression. Viva Magenta represents a positive future in an uncertain world. This colour provides a psychological power and grace, giving us the verve we have been grasping for.

WORD OF THE DAY:

 

Verve: (noun)

enthusiasm or vigor; vivaciousness; liveliness; spirit

 

PANTONE 18-1750

FUN FACT:

The origins of the magenta shade can be traced back to the cochineal beetle, which produces red carmine dye, one of the most precious natural dyes.

Remember Framing

Using Viva Magenta in Your Home

Many of us have neutral coloured walls and furniture. It is safe, but sometimes can be a bit boring. Make a stand out statement with Viva Magenta! Neutral spaces often beg for a focal point
something as simple as changing out sofa pillows with magenta ones might do the trick. What about a fabulous piece of magenta coloured art? Or a colourful chair? Or a floral arrangement? Or will you be daring and paint a single wall Viva Magenta for a dramatic look?

Last year greens were the IT colour, and many of us embraced them; they were a soft, soothing shade. Red and Green are complementary colours, so try pairing Viva Magenta with Valspar’s colour of the year, Green Trellis. The result will be a calm vibe, mixed with an energetic pop. Add polished silver hardware or frame and you’re set!

COLOR TRENDS 2022

COLOR TRENDS 2022

FRESH NEW YEAR FRESH COLOR PALETTE

For over 20 years Pantone has determined a ‘Color of the Year’ based on design trends, socio economic conditions and our global culture. This year, for the first time, a new color was created to reflect the challenging, changing times we are all going through. Drum roll, please…

Introducing Very Peri!

 

How do you describe Very Peri? It’s a dynamic blue with violet-red undertones. Pantone describes it as blending the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red.

While Pantone concentrates on an all encompassing color trend, paint companies who determine ‘Colors of the Year’ use the same criteria geared towards home interiors. Playing on last years ‘calm me down and help me feel secure’ colors, it’s unanimous! Green is THE home décor color of 2022! Green is a calming color and represents regrowth. With that in mind, let’s look at colors the major paint companies say will be everywhere next year.

Color Trends Pantone

Guacamole by Glidden

Just like our favorite appetizer, Guacamole is relaxing and refreshing. It brings an organic energy to any space.

Evergreen Fog by Sherwin-Williams

Color Trends Pantone

October Mist by Benjamin Moore

October Mist is a muted shade of sage green that can carry a look without drawing too much attention to itself.

What will your room be wearing this year?

Very Peri could be an overall color if you are bold enough, but it will probably work best as an accent color. Muted greens can work as understated wall colors or accents.

What Palette Do You Pair Well With?

You’re a down to earth, calm person who enjoys a relaxing vibe. This palette combines Behr’s Breezeway with Rainy Afternoon, Snowbound, and Ultra Pure White. Pair it with warm silvers and light woods for a modern, cozy space.

You’re an earthy, natural person and you like anything organic. This is a perfect palette for you. Sherwin Williams pairs Evergreen Fog with Neutral Ground, Dried Edamame, and Ethereal White. Top it off with light colored woods like Maple.
