2023 Colours of the year

In the colder winter months, we tend to spend a lot of time indoors. Looking at the same walls over and over again can seem stagnant and stale, so why not add a splash of new colour to your interiors to freshen things up?

North America’s top paint companies have once again released their colour choices of the year; hues that will define interior design, décor and marketing trends for 2023.

Here are the 2023 colours of the year from some of the most influential paint brands:

Taking cues from nature and the red family, Pantone’s Viva Magenta is said to stir feelings of power, strength and unrestrained self-expression. This vibrant pink-red is a statement colour that is inspired by the natural dye cochineal, and is a stark contrast to the company’s cool-toned 2022 colour of the year, Very Peri.


Glidden: Vining Ivy (PPG1148-6)

This muted aqua tone offers an eye-popping statement colour to add to an accent wall or ceiling. Glidden’s Vining Ivy couples nicely with deep wood tones and off-white cabinets or trim, making it a good pick for kitchens and living rooms.

Behr: Blank Canvas (DC-003)   

Blank Canvas by Behr could be the perfect neutral to match with similar cozy colours. A light, warm beige, Behr’s 2023 colour of the year is compatible with navies, forest greens and greys in any room, whether it’s a relaxing primary bedroom or a welcoming front entryway.

Sherwin-Williams: Redend Point (SW 9081)

Self-described as a “soulful-yet-subtle hue,” Redend Point by Sherwin-Williams brings a touch of earth-like ambience into your interiors. Expressing an aura of intrigue, calmness and minimalism, this soft brown shade pairs well with other warm variations of cream, red and green.

Benjamin Moore: Raspberry Blush (2008-30)


Similar to a coral but with a subtle pink undertone, Benjamin Moore’s Raspberry Blush is described as a charismatic colour. This orange-red could be the perfect paint choice for anyone looking to make their walls, wainscotting, or perhaps just a powder room, feel upbeat and optimistic.
