The Pantone Color of the Year for 2023 is Viva Magenta
We’ve been wondering what kind of path Pantone would forge for 2023. After last year’s Pantone color of the year, Digital Lavender evoked cool and serene vibes to offset the unmoored feeling of 2022; their pick for this year turns up the warmth and invites us to play. Pantone’s color of the year for 2023 is Viva Magenta.
Let’s Nerd Out About Magenta
Magenta is a royal color that appeared in ancient textiles that predate modern manufacturing techniques. From modern to Victorian, magenta appears as that little something extra in so many design eras. Though it possesses deep, vintage roots, magenta is anything but classic. This color of the moment delivers the warmth and creativity that captures our collective yearning for something passionate and new. From fashion to home decor, pops of magenta or a full plunge into Viva Magenta-soaked majesty is just what we need for the 2023 style.
What Are the New Colors for 2023?
Of course, Pantone isn’t the only tastemaker for color trends for 2023. The color trends for 2023 fall into a few main categories, many of which play well together. Choose some neutrals of the moment to present a stately contrast, or turn up the heat with another warm pick from the 2023 hot list.

Places to Play with Pops of Color
We’re happy to provide ideas to incorporate the color of the year. Whether you’re in for a dash or a dollop of Viva Magenta, we’ve got some design ideas for Pantone’s 2023 color of the year.
Color in Small Doses
If you’re unsure how to incorporate magenta into your design scheme, start with easily replaceable items like textiles and decor. Match marvelous magenta curtains and throws for ultimate luxe living room vibes. Set off your greenery with magenta decor items like vases and bowls. Pair neutrals like gray, which never goes out of style, and warm taupe, to make the most of your minimal magenta. It’s okay to start small and fall in love slowly.
A Moderate Foray into Magenta
If you’re ready to make a deeper commitment to stunning Viva Magenta, it might be time to break out the paint. Paint your interior trim or doors magenta. Try vibrant magenta on your painted wood floors, or paint a cabinet or display shelf with bold Viva Magenta. Magenta is perfect for creating conversational pieces that add interest to your aesthetic and delight your guests.
Viva Magenta to the Max
Moody maximalism has an ally in Viva Magenta. If you’re ready for a deep color commitment, consider special order appliances in magenta, magenta kitchen or bathroom cabinets, or a magenta bathroom or kitchen sink. Adorn your powder room with magenta walls. Magenta-painted accent walls make for a decadent focal point in your library or bedroom. The plush magenta carpet makes a romantic statement. Your custom home can be a color-soaked celebration if you like– it’s yours.
Ways to Incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year into Your Home’s Exterior
Magenta is not exclusively an indoor color. Consider painting your front door magenta or updating your shutters or trim with a pinky-red splash. Viva magenta also appears in the natural world. Add azaleas, roses, zinnias, cosmos, and other Georgia landscaping staples with magenta blossoms to compliment your new magenta exterior paint.
