The 2023 paint color trends have been announced and fiery and dramatic reds seem to be a popular choice.

The last few years have been about resetting with a new decade and grounding ourselves with the craziness of the pandemic, so focusing on energizing colors in 2023 is not surprising.

Let’s check out the color trends to expect in the new year!

Redend Point (SW 9081) is a muted earth tone that is a beige-y pink color depending on the time of day.

With an LRV of 30, this warm color absorbs more light than it reflects, making look darker. I chose a similar mauve paint color for my daughters’ bedroom makeover and her room is so cozy and inviting!

Pantone Viva Magenta

Looking for a bold color for your home? Viva Magenta may be the perfect paint color for you! This saturated pink-red shade is bound to bring energy into any room.

The LRV is 14, making this a dark color that absorbs light.

Shavonda Gardner used this shade on her kitchen cabinets and it turned out beautifully. I love how the copper accents complement the bold cabinets and stove.

Pantone describes their color of the year choice as “an unconventional shade for an unconventional time” and I think that is a perfect description!

Benjamin Moore Raspberry Blush

Benjamin Moore chose Raspberry Blush for their 2023 color of the year and it is another bold and charismatic red.

This orange-ish red is dark and saturated with an LRV of 23.

Glidden Vining Ivy

The 2023 paint color trends are bold, including Vining Ivy by Glidden.

This blueish green color has an LRV of 15 and looks great paired with warm metals and wood tones.

“The green part of [Vining Ivy] says that greens are still part of the story, but it has a jewel-like element added to it with the blue that makes it a bit enchanting,”

Ashley McCollum, Glidden’s colour expert

The moody, jewel-toned color can also be used as an accent color on a sofa using an inviting, velvet fabric.

Behr Blank Canvas

Blank Canvas by Behr is exactly that – a blank canvas that compliments many different designs and styles in a home.

With an LRV of 84, Blank Canvas is the brightest color trend chosen for 2023.

This creamy white works well in all spaces, including hallways, entryways, kitchens, bathrooms, and main living spaces.

HGTV Home Darkroom

Darkroom is part of HGTV Home’s 2023 Vintage Homestead Color Collection and the Color of the Year.

This black paint color has eggplant undertones, an LRV of 5, and is a great neutral when applied to walls. Darkroom creates drama in a room while also acting as a grounded neutral.

Farrow & Ball Bamboozle

Farrow and Ball describe Bamboozle as a spirited, flame red that brings joy and warmth to any room scheme and is easy to use in traditional and modern homes.

This living room mixes two paint color trends this year with a muted pink on top and bold red on the bottom of the wall.

This dark, rusty red looks great with creamy whites and earthy green accents as well.

Graham and Brown Alizarin

Alizarin is another rusty red that is warm and inviting when added to a space. The muted red front door compliments the warm undertones in the bricks.

This deep red looks fantastic when paired with contrasting blues and greens, like the wallpaper in the adjoining room.

Valspar Ivory Brown

Valspar chose Ivory Brown for its 2023 paint Color of the Year and I am in love with this warm neutral!

This light brown has an LRV of 46 and is a versatile color option for any style of home.

“A washed brown tone inspired by the shades found in nature, this warm neutral is being incorporated inside and out of the home.”

– Sue Kim, Valspar® Color Marketing Manager

I am drawn to mushroom-colored cabinets and this earthy hue is the perfect tone in this kitchen.

Can you picture yourself using any of the 2023 paint trends in the new year?

While I do not encourage redesigning a room every year, I enjoy learning about new colors when the colors of the year are announced.
