New year, new paint colors. Painting your walls is one of the least time-consuming, the most simple, and quickest, we might add, ways to entirely change a room or even the vibe of your entire home. Oftentimes the hardest part is actually choosing the paint color; the right color makes you feel as though you have fully achieved the look you were after, while the wrong color makes you start a countdown for when you can paint over your mistake. These are three paint colors that are predicted to be huge in 2023 and we have a feeling there’s something here minimalists, maximalists, and everyone in between. Let’s get started!
Pantone’s Color of the Year: Viva Magenta

We simply had to start with Pantone’s color of the year, Viva Magenta. Pantone describes this shade best as, “a crimson red tone that presents a balance between warm and cool.” Now when it comes to the color of the year, it’s not uncommon for people to want to incorporate said color into their wardrobe, home decor, and even fitness equipment. We happen to think if you’re looking to brighten and warm up a room, an accent wall in the 2023 color of the year is a great option. Furthermore, if you’re a maximalist, we say go all the way with Viva Magenta and do an entire wall or all of the walls in a room because this shade will look incredible adorned with brass mirrors and unique light fixtures.
Behr’s 2023 Color of the Year: Blank Canvas

Next up is Behr’s 2023 color of the year, Blank Canvas. This shade is for all of our minimalists that like to keep their walls clean and inviting like a, well, blank canvas. This hue is a great option if you like to let your creativity flow freely on a wall and it looks phenomenal with neutrals, earth tones, pastels, or something a little bold and bright. Blank Canvas gives you the option to go big or keep it simple.
Sherwin William’s Color of the Year: Redend Point
If you’re not quite a maximalist, but don’t consider yourself a minimalist, Sherwin William’s color of the year may be just what you’re looking for. Somewhere between blush and beige is Redent Point, a color that is described as “warm and joyful”. We love this color paired with neutral, earthy tones and we especially love it as a backdrop to a ton of plants whether those plants are real or fake. (We don’t discriminate here.)
