The trend colors of furnishings for 2023: Companies like the Pantone Color Institute and WGSN are trying to track down and predict them. We'll tell you what the current color trends are and how you can skillfully decorate your living space with these trend colors.

What are Pantone colors?

The Patone Matching System, PMS for short, is a color identification system that is used worldwide. This system has been able to coordinate different colors for furnishings since 1963. The color system includes over 1500 colors and comes from the US company Pantone.

Every year the Patone Color Institute predicts the trending colors of the year. However, there are other companies that track down and predict trend colors - the international trend research company WGSN, for example, which has chosen a very special color as the trend color of 2023. More on that later.

This is the Pantone color of the year 2023

In 2023, “ Viva Magenta ” is the Patone color of the year. It is a strong pink-purple color. This strong color can be used as an accent tone. According to color psychology, Viva Magenta can have a calming effect and increase self-confidence.

This new trend color is an optimistic color. It should remind you of the most beautiful colors in nature - for example a colorful sunset or a beautiful flower. The color symbolizes freedom, playfulness and has a rebellious, mischievous streak.

But: The strong color is rare in nature and for this reason quickly becomes the focus. It dwarfs the rest of the facility and attracts attention.

Decorate with the Pantone color Viva Magenta – less is more

If you want to dare to choose the color of the year 2023, plan well: The purple color Viva Magenta looks extravagant and luxurious, but is also very eye-catching and strong. For this reason, you should pay attention to a good balance. When it comes to Viva Magenta, less is simply more.

When implementing this 2023 interior design trend, you'll be safe if you limit yourself to accents: you can choose a bedspread, pillows or candles in this eye-catching crimson red.

If you want to do more than just splashes of Viva Magenta color, choose a couch or chairs in this color. If you paint an entire wall in the trend color, choose predominantly non-colors or neutral colors in the rest of the apartment. Decoration made of black metal, for example, or open metal shelves in black or white.

If you don't like Viva Magenta, you can still follow the color trends of the year and decorate your living space with a different trend color. The following other Pantone colors were selected as trend colors this year.

These are other trend colors for furnishings in 2023

Another hot color is Digital Lavender. It was chosen as the color of the year by the international trend research institute WGSN. Many design experts believe it will become one of the trend colors of the year. The gentle lavender color is not as intrusive as Viva Magenta, but still sets accents.

Other trend colors for 2023 are:

  • Lucious Red
  • Tranquil Blue
  • Sundial
  • Verdigris

In addition to some strong color accents, natural colors are still in trend. You can implement this with natural elements - for example a coffee table in beige or a natural sisal carpet. In addition to the desire for peace and security in your own home, strong colors should radiate happiness and optimism.

Furnishing with Digital Lavender – this is how you implement the trend color in your living spaces

You should remember Digital Lavender - because this color is set to dominate fashion and interior design in 2023. The light shade of purple manages to express two feelings: happiness and calm.

Digital Lavender is the perfect color for living spaces because it manages to brighten the mood without being intrusive. The Pantone color of the year cannot do that. In addition, colors with a short wavelength - including light purple tones - evoke feelings of calm.

You don't necessarily have to use this trend color sparingly: you can paint an entire wall in digital lavender or choose selected accessories such as bedspreads and cozy pillows to bring the light purple into your living space.
