At the beginning of the year, new trends across industries come to life and set the scene for the upcoming months. Interior design is no exception, and chances are you’ve probably heard of Pantone’s color of the year before. Every year, the Pantone Color Institute picks a color that’s represented across various industries. According to the Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute, Laurie Pressmann, it reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that color can hope to answer. In 2023, the Pantone Color of the Year title goes to the one and only Viva Magenta. Sounds fancy, we know. But what exactly is it, and where can we expect to see it this year (and in the years to come)?
What is Viva Magenta?
The Pantone Color Institute refers to Viva Magenta 18-1750 as a rebellious hybrid of red and pink. It’s rich, bold, and expressive, and vibrates with energy and enthusiasm. As a shade rooted in nature and originating from the red family, this color is seen as a new signal of strength, especially when people are looking for something joyous and optimistic. According to the experts at Pantone, Viva Magenta is “An unconventional shade for an unconventional time,” and we couldn’t agree more. This year is calling for some positive changes and we’re all up for adding as much color as possible into the space around us.
One thing is for sure – Viva Magenta will be big this year. Expect to see this color everywhere – from fashion to makeup to interior design. Let’s embrace it and get some inspiration on how we can incorporate this rich color in our interiors, and brighten up our homes!
