Color Trends 2023
Viva Magenta is Pantone’s Color of the Year!
Viva Magenta! The top color forecasted for 2023 has verve, and that is exactly what we need right now. Pantone has declared the color 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 color family is an energetic group, encouraging experimentation and self-expression. Viva Magenta represents a positive future in an uncertain world. This color provides a psychological power and grace, giving us the verve we have been grasping for.
Using Viva Magenta in your Home
Many of us have neutral-colored 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 colored art? Or a colorful 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 color, and many of us embraced them; they were a soft, soothing shade. Red and Green are complementary colors, so try pairing Viva Magenta with Valspar’s color 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!
