Peek into the future of home decorating. Discover what hues are most popular for home interiors this year with the 2023 paint color trends from all of the major paint companies. Let’s dive into What’s Hott!

Tread # 1: vibrant red

It is a bright and vibrant color that was selected by three of the paint companies as their color of the year.

Benjamin Moore chose “Raspberry Blush” as their color of the year.

It’s a bright orange red that they describe as “never a backdrop” and “built to envelop you in vivacious color”.  Which it certainly does!

Pantone chose “Viva Magenta” as their 2023 color of the year.

It’s a vibrant red with a little blue in it that they describe as “brave and fearless” and “expressive of a new signal of strength”.

While it’s not directly available in a paint color, Benjamin Moore’s “Blushing Red”, Behr’s “Cherry Wine” and Sherwin Williams “Cherries Jubilee” are all close matches to consider.

Dunn Edwards chose “Terra Rosa” as their 2023 color of the year.

It’s a deep rose color with a touch of terra cotta influence that isn’t as bright as the other two.

They describe it as being “strong yet approachable” and exuding “confidence, creativity and coziness”.

There are a couple of other bright reds available in this year’s trending colors in case you want some alternate selections.
