Colour Trends 2023

18 January 2023

Every year major painting companies announce their colour of the year which they believe to become popular among their clientele. It is interesting to watch how colour trends evolve over the years and if you see the proposed colours appealing and applicable in your home interior.
Whether you are someone following the trends or not, it is nice to be informed, thus armed.

Raspberry Blush by Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore announced Raspberry Blush 2008-30, a vivacious shade of coral tinged with pink, to be the colour of 2023. “Raspberry Blush enlivens the senses with an electric optimism”, states the official announcement. The red-orange colour can energize a more plain or minimalist space by adding pops of lively tints. With this colour being as bright as it is, be careful not to overdo it. Incorporate this shade in décor pieces or as an accent wall, and tone down the space by balancing it with beige, whites or creams.

Sherwin Williams settled on a soulful earthy tone Redend Point SW 9081. With warmth and comfort being the central design theme for the upcoming months, Redend Point fits the bill. This hue is a blend of blush and beige with red undertones — a more Earthy version of the pinks you might have seen in the past. Sherwin-Williams brings an air of sophistication and class with their 2023 colour choice. Put this inviting colour in a foyer or entryway to welcome guests into your home, or create the perfect cozy bedroom by enveloping your space with this cheery tint.
