Warm whites and creams had a much stronger showing on this year’s color lists than they have in recent years.

Trend # 1: white & cream

Many companies had at least one option on their list and Behr chose a white as its color of the year.

It is a warm off-white that looks gorgeous with pretty much everything.

Beige is another big color trend for 2023. But in stronger tones than we’ve seen in the past.

Like most of the colors above, only one company picked this as their color of the year, but it was well-represented on the trends lists from everyone else.

Sherwin Williams chose “Redend Point” as their 2023 color of the year.

It’s a strong beige that they describe as “minimal yet cozy” and creating a “comforting backdrop”.

Trend # 5: natural browns

It is a neutral that has been on the paint color trends list for a few years now.

While it is dark, it is a warm and cozy color that brings the feeling of nature indoors.
