A new year means out with the old and in with the new—and that goes for your home, too. If you’re feeling the itch to freshen up your space, a bold new colour palette makes for a quick and easy update. Whether you paint an entire room, create an accent wall, or incorporate new hues into your accessories and decor, these shades are sure to pop in 2023.
Pantone – Viva Magenta
Pantone has chosen a vibrant crimson red for its Colour of the Year that’s ready to make an impact at home. With natural roots—it hails from dye created by the cochineal beetle—it’s meant to be a celebratory ode to nature. Viva Magenta brings the drama, so try incorporating it in small doses first, such as with a couch, accent chair, or throw pillows.
Benjamin Moore – Raspberry Blush
You can’t help but think of Spring when you see Benjamin Moore’s 2023 colour selection. This pink, coral shade is an optimistic burst of brightness that’s ready to usher in a new season. This delicious hue would make an excellent accent wall, or to brighten up an entryway.
Behr – Blank Canvas
Looking to start your year with peace and serenity? Behr’s Blank Canvas is the perfect way to wipe the slate clean. This creamy neutral shade adds warmth to any space and is especially effective for spaces that call for calm, like the bedroom or bathroom.
Sherwin Williams – Redend Point
For another minimalist colour, look no further than Sherwin Williams’ Redend Point—an earthy, inviting tone that adds interest without being overwhelming. To incorporate this colour, try finding dishware, textiles, and even bedding in this hue, or give old furniture a makeover with a fresh coat of paint.
Glidden – Vining Ivy
Love blues and greens, but can never decide on one? Enter Glidden’s Vining Ivy, the ideal combination of both. This luxurious aqua transforms rooms into soothing spaces with the swipe of a paintbrush. Try it in the bedroom for at-home feelings of R&R.
