Soft Pastels, Blushing Pinks, and a Touch of Nature: Paint Companies Forecast 2023 Color Trends
Where last year was a garden of green shades from paint companies, 2023 stands out for its diversity of color predictions and the emphasis on more neutral hues like pastels and warm whites. There is a shade to inspire every form of self expression in your home, from the white/black contrast of Blank Canvas or Darkroom, to three different takes on pink!
This neutral shade that Behr describes as a “warm and welcoming” white harmonizes with a wide range of hues that can be used anywhere in your home.
One of a few colors trending this year in the pink and rose range, Benjamin Moore’s Raspberry Blush is a “vivacious shade of coral tinged with pink.” This bold red orange is an exciting choice for an accent wall or to make a stylish design statement in a powder room or other small space.
We love Glidden’s description of “Vining Ivy,” as “bluish greenish something in betweenish”. A jewel tone that echoes colors of the forest, this is a versatile shade that works in both modern and traditional homes.
This warm and hue, described as a “blushing beige,” is earthy and comforting, a reflection of trends toward connecting with nature in our homes over the past several years. Adaptable to many spaces in your home, Redend Point could act as a modern neutral alternative to white or beige.
HGTV’s nostalgic shade and the Vintage Homestead collection it’s part of “looks to the past for a sense of comfortable ease.” Inspired by film photography, Darkroom is a deep black with purple undertones that can bring a sense of romantic artistry to your home on one wall or on doors and trim.
This “deep, rosy pink hue with a touch of terra-cotta,” is Dunn-Edwards’ pick as a “strong but approachable” neutral. Influenced by health & wellness, nostalgia and the natural world, Terra Rosa would bring sweet warmth to a bedroom or wherever you want a sense of healing comfort.
Valspar’s 2023 collection includes soft neutrals, sweet pastels, and soothing shades of blue and green. The collection emphasizes shades that “encourage self expression”, are effortless to use, and bring a sense of inspiration to every corner of your home. Trends are a creative place to start when considering how color is used in your whole home remodel or new home, one of the most influential decisions in the design process.
