How to Incorporate Color Into Your Home
Every year, paint companies choose a hue that they see being the focal point of their color collections as the calendar switches over, and this year is no exception. These color choices are made by design experts who use their knowledge to predict what pigment will take the cake as the most popular home color for the next 12 months.
Although not every color will be your favorite, and you won’t be able to add each of these shades to your home’s palette, it’s a good idea to know which paints will be frequently used in 2023. Let’s take a peek at some of this year’s colors.
The colors that are predicted to fill the walls of people all over the country next year are warm, relaxing and inspired by nature. Here are some of the colors to keep on your radar:
Spanish Moss by Krylon
Green grew in popularity throughout this year, and the trend will continue into 2023. Spanish Moss is a deep forest green and draws inspiration from nature. This shade would serve well as an accent color for a living room or dining room and would also be beautiful if incorporated in a focal piece of furniture or wall art.
Redend Point by Sherwin-Williams
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 color choice. Put this inviting color 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.
Terra Rosa by Dunn-Edwards
Keeping in line with exuberant warm shades is Dunn-Edwards’ color prediction, Terra Rosa. Take a deep maroon and blend it with light brown and the result is a chic burgundy rose. With this color being brighter and a stand-out choice for your home’s interior, it’s the perfect solution for extra charm. Add this color to your space in the form of throw pillows, table runners or even a plush chair in your living room.
Raspberry Blush by Benjamin Moore
If your room is vying for more attention and zest, Raspberry Blush by Benjamin Moore is the answer. The red-orange color can energize a more plain or minimalist space by adding pops of lively tints. With this color being as bright as it is, be careful not to overdo it. Incorporate this shade in decor pieces or as an accent wall, and tone down the space by balancing it with beige, whites or creams.
There are other colors that may be prevalent in the new year, but knowing the color direction that people are headed is helpful for your own personal design choices.
