Impactful reds and oranges
Benjamin Moore proclaims Raspberry Blush as their official colour of the year. The decision denotes a greater movement within the interior design industry towards more saturated shades. Colours in the red, orange, and terracotta families are projected due to their ability to take people out of their comfort zones and be more expressive with their colour choices.
Though it’s derived from the red family, magenta brings forward a vibrant spirit all of its own that people will be craving in the upcoming year. The Pantone Color Institute named Viva Magenta as its official colour of the year for 2023. A red with subtle notes of purple, agenda flawlessly complements many different colour palettes.
Pantone further notes as virtual reality has become more and more prominent in our everyday lives, a shade like Viva Magenta is able to thrive in both worlds and encourage exploration.
A fresh take on the classic green, sage green pairs well with both light and dark colours, making it a great choice for both interior and exterior design.

Though nature still continues to inspire Colour Trends into 2023, there’s an increasing interest in shades of warm brown that are reminiscent of different types of woods, minerals, and even jewels.
Alternatives to black
Black will never go out of style, but there are plenty of other shades that can bring that sense of depth and elegance into a room. Benjamin Moore highlights Wenge, deep chocolate with notes of violet and black, as a great alternative to black. Deep shades of brown, purple, and green carry all the drama and strength that black does but feel unexpected and layered.
