Sherwin Williams Redend Point

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! Check out my complete color review for Redend Point including more ways to include it in your home decor!

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.

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

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.

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

Mecc interiors use this moody, jewel-toned color as an accent color on a sofa using an inviting, velvet fabric.
