This electric coral hue exudes confidence and optimism and represents a stark change from 2022’s beachy color of the year, Aegean Teal. Use Raspberry Blush as a statement for an overall room or use it on an accent wall. It pairs well with grays, creams, black, and white – all shades that can be easily used to touch up other rooms. The coral is a fun twist on crimson and would be a perfect color for someone designing a dining room that pulsates with personality.
Fun fact: There’s even a song by Chromeo dedicated to celebrating this beautiful blush.
Additional winners include: Conch Shell, Cinnamon, Wenge, Savannah Green, New Age, Starry Night Blue, and North Sea Green
Dunn-Edwards – Terra Rosa
Noticing a trend? Rosy hues are in for 2023. This terra-cotta pink is reminiscent of cinnamon and is a great way to refresh brown and burgundy shades. Terra Rosa provides a pretty touch of comfort while still being capable of adding depth.
The four major factors Dunn-Edwards used to select this shade as its color of the year were health and well-being, nostalgia, nature, and the increasing trend in popularity of orange and red hues. Terra Rosa is neutral but empowering, and the color conveys a protective spirit that was created to help painters disentangle themselves from vulnerable emotions caused by the chaos of the last few years. The color also offers high romance and reminds viewers of a simpler past.
This shade can be paired with a wide variety of colors, so it’s a fabulous one to consider if you want to leave your space open to creativity.
Sherwin-Williams – Redend Point
Sherwin-Williams’ Redend Point is a glorious warm sandy brown that borders on beige. It’s minimalistic and neutral but intriguing enough to catch the eye. Coordinate your palette with other earthy hues to make the most out of this cozy paint. In addition to being a great backdrop color, Redend Point works well on accent furniture and cabinetry too.
To save homeowners time on designing, Sherwin-Williams put together a curated Etsy list of accessories that go well with Redend Point. Items include natural stoneware, wooden furniture, rattan accents, and other nature-inspired accessories.
Other colors from the palette include: Foothills, Cool Beige, Carnelian, Hushed Auburn, Malted Milk, Pure White, Urbane Bronze, and Toile Red
HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams – Darkroom
Dark and elegant, Darkroom by HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams is a deep eggplant-infused black inspired by the classic romance of historic interiors. It’s also perfectly capable of creating a modern, retro atmosphere depending upon its surroundings. In addition to its deep dimension, Darkroom adds a hint of nature to any room with its rich warm hue reminiscent of the earth. Pair this shade with any of this brand’s colors from the Vintage Homestead Color Collection of the Year for a beautiful interior.
Other colors from HGTV Home’s 2023 Color Collection of the Year include: Poetry Plum, Restrained Gold, Natural Linen, Cool Beige, Austere Gray, Pewter Green, Glamour, Wall Street, and Hot Cocoa
Behr – Blank Canvas
Blank Canvas is an inviting subtle cream shade that combines well with a variety of colors and allows homeowners to accessorize to their hearts’ desire. Some of Behr’s featured designs include cabinetry and kitchen, bathroom, and dining room walls. Although this color may lack the pop of some of 2023’s other colors, it does provide unparalleled flexibility in terms of other design choices.
Behr’s experts recommend matching with these colors: Vine Leaf, Vintage Pewter, Midnight Blue, Gratifying Gray, and/or Cracked Pepper
Glidden – Vining Ivy
Glidden declared Vining Ivy, a bluish-green shade, its 2023 color of the year. This paint reminds homeowners of a day at the beach, especially when paired with beige and rattan accessories. If a whole room of blue-green is not your style, know that this color is great on an accent wall or piece of furniture.
Other trending colors by Glidden: Foxfire Brown, Stonehenge Greige, Cool Clay, Dark Granite, Spicy Mustard, Pine Forest, Fossil Stone, Lazy River, and Mostly Metal
Better Homes and Gardens – Canyon Ridge
Imagine a glowing coral sunset signaling relaxation after a long day. That’s what Canyon Ridge evokes. This shade’s pink-orange color is a spin on terra cotta that elicits soothing naturalist vibes. Roll this desert clay hue on an entire room or an accent wall. Want to try something really unique? Use this as your ceiling color or as part of a stencil design! This color brightens up any room and also functions wonderfully as an accent color for furniture.
Canyon Ridge is extremely versatile, and its neutral tone makes decorating a cinch. Since orange and blue are opposites on the color wheel, try adding accessories with pops of blue for the perfect complementary colors. If too many bright colors are not your style, consider denim instead to prop up farmhouse vibes or navy blues to support a more modern theme.
Keep in mind, Canyon Ridge is exclusively available at Walmart.
