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!
