2023 Colour Forecasts
Moving on from the calm greys, neutrals and back-to-nature shades of green that featured heavily over the past few years, 2023 interiors colour predictions have the common theme of 'warmth and positivity of nature' leaving the cool tones behind us and looks towards a richer warmer colour palette. Impactful tones that will enhance the natural wood and textiles that have been popular home accessories for a while, but with more scope for individuality
The Pantone 2023 colour of the year is the bold -18-1750 Viva Magenta - is a brave and fearless choice, 'a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration'. Although its bold raspberry hue looks to be a wow colour, seeing it in its colour family shows how it works with your neutrals creating a warm colour pop and will influence the use of warm pink toned colours in homes and fashion even if you're not ready for Viva Magenta just yet.
Graham and Browns deep earthy brown/pink Alizarin is their paint colour choice for the year ahead, a strong feature colour, that can mellow down when paired with warm whites and muted clay.

The Sherwin Williams colour of the year 2023 - Redend Point SW 9081- is a warm neutral blush-beige that blends the energies of playful pinks and steadying earth tones, working with warm whites, browns and pinks.
Farrow & Ball have introduced 11 new colours to their collection, the first additions in 4 years, and they include a new muted neutral Templeton Pink and the striking red based Bamboozle.
Dulux has named 'Wild Wonder' as its Colour of the Year 2023 — a warm yellow green tone which hopes to create a sense of 'energy and positivity'.
A special mention has to be given to a Teal resurgence this year, although not specifically chosen as the colour of the year, it does appear on those family groups of colour cards as a piece worthy of interest. Teal is a mix of green and blue, whereas Turquoise is more green, and it works as a feature/accent with neutrals and warm woods and also as a vibrant companion to the reds, chartreuse and roses in this years mix.
