Five Colour Trends for 2023
Each year, colour trends and interior styles evolve and move forward with the times. Although you don’t have to be a professional designer to understand the ins and outs of interior world, it can feel impossible to keep up with the latest fashion. We’re here to help with that.
Many current paint trends include using bright, bold colours which don’t detract from their softness. This vibrant-relaxed hybrid creates a welcome environment, adding character to a room without compromising on light.
So, without further ado, let’s break down some of the top colour trends for 2023.
Colour trend #1 – Pantone’s 2023 Colour of the Year – Viva Magenta 18-1750
If you’re new to the world of design, everybody’s talking about Pantone’s Colour of the Year. Announced in January, it always causes a buzz and sets a colour trend for the coming year.
For 2023, that colour is Viva Magenta 18-1750. Described by Pantone as being a ‘Powerful and empowering boundaryless shade’, Viva Magenta piqued the interest of many in the artistic and interior design communities, from professionals to hobbyists alike.
‘Invoking the forces of nature’ and moving on from Pantone’s 2022 technology-inspired Colour of the Year, Very Peri 17-3938 – a shade of purple (you might say is ‘so last year’) said to exude a ‘carefree confidence’. Keep an eye on Pantone colour trends here.
Colour trend #2 – Benjamin Moore’s 2023 Colour of the Year: Raspberry Blush
You may notice a pattern emerging in 2023 colour trends… vibrant shades of red are in!
Benjamin Moore’s 2023 Colour of the Year is Raspberry Blush 2008-30 – ‘the definition of a charismatic colour’ says their UK Director, Helen Shaw.
While red can feel an intimidating colour to commit to, you don’t have to go all out. Even a simple flourish of Raspberry Blush on a piece of upcycled furniture will liven up the room.
Colour trend #3 – Muted pinks and purples
While a pink room may have once seemed a little adventurous, softer shades of pink and purple are becoming more versatile in the home. Using pastel colours creates a warm, homely environment and muted pinks and purples can accentuate the whites in the room.
Colour trend #4 – Be yourself!
It’s becoming increasingly popular to express yourself by introducing bolder colour palettes into living spaces. There’s now a great focus on complimenting natural tones with more dynamic colours.
While we’re not saying goodbye to neutral hues anytime soon, homeowners are becoming more adventurous by adding a splash of their personalities to their homes – a fantastic way to celebrate individuality.
Taking pride in your home has always been important to enjoying your living space. Particularly in recent years, when many people have taken up hybrid working – see our guide to home office improvement.
Colour trend #5 – Calming blues
Whether it’s a sky blue, a deep-sea blue, or a midnight blue… to remind you of a cool breeze on a sunny day or to help you drift off to sleep – blue is the colour of ultimate relaxation.
Evoking feelings of serenity and tranquillity, blue helps to reduce stress and anxiety levels and create a sense of balance and stability in a space. Now, who doesn’t want to feel that in their home?
Lighter shades of blue are often used in bedrooms, bathrooms, and other spaces where relaxation is the primary focus. It’s particularly effective in rooms with smaller windows and less natural light.
Darker shades of blue are more suited for spaces like offices or living rooms, where the calming effect can help create a sense of focus and productivity.
