The colors of the year, greeted with much anticipation, influence everything from interior aesthetics and fashion to appliances and electronics. And while last year’s colors primarily spotlighted shades of green, reflecting our desire to commune with nature, the lineup for 2023 welcomes in (for the most part) warmer hues.
Blank Canvas—the Behr selection for color of the year—is a welcoming off-white that invites creativity. This shade harmonizes with a variety of tones, including colors on the warmer side of the color wheel, making it an ideal partner for the picks from Sherwin-Williams and Dunn-Edwards.
A mid-tone neutral between blush and beige, Redend Point from Sherwin-Williams is cozy, with subtle pink undertones that complement an array of décor styles.
In a similar vein is Terra Rosa, a soothing, rosy pink. This pick, from Dunn-Edwards, exudes a touch of terra cotta, and works as a grounding neutral as well as a delicate accent.
Looking for a balance between warm and cool? And maybe a little pop and personality? Benjamin Moore has you covered, courtesy of Raspberry Blush. A vibrant coral tinged with pink, Raspberry Blush makes a statement on its own or as an accent color.
Then there’s Viva Magenta, Pantone’s color of the year. Rooted in nature, this vibrant and nuanced shade of crimson red also strikes a balance between warm and cool. Exuberant and powerful, Viva Magenta expresses joy, optimism and inclusivity.
Pinks and reds aren’t the only showstoppers this year, though. Rich, cooler colors are getting their chance to take center stage, too. Such is the case with Vining Ivy, named color of the year by both PPG and Glidden.
This luxurious, beautiful fusion of blue and green invokes the Caribbean’s turquoise waters—and the continued interest of incorporating nature into our everyday lives.
No matter whether you want your window treatments to blend in or stand out, at Hunter Douglas you’ll find hundreds of colors, textures and fabrics to combine with this year’s trending colors.
Try pairing the warmer colors of the year with the sheer aesthetic of Silhouette® or Pirouette® Window Shadings. The sheers on Silhouette shades float between S-shaped fabric vanes for beautiful, diffused light, along with daytime privacy, while the single back sheer with unique fabric vanes on Pirouette shades alters light in a magical way.
Balance high-spirited Raspberry Blush and Vivid Magenta with exclusive fabrics from designer Lori Weitzner, which are available in Alustra® Woven Textures® Roller or Roman shades or Skyline® Gliding Window Panels.
Lori’s nuanced patterns blend with calming neutral colors in her collection of five fabrics, which feature varying levels of opacity from sheer to semi-opaque. Inspired by the movement of patterns of nature, Lori’s design reflects details such as dappled light, sculpted bark and moss underfoot.
And if Vining Ivy is a must for a room re-do, consider the darker finishes you’ll find with Heritance® Hardwood Shutters. Crafted from 100 percent natural hardwood and harvested from sustainably managed forests, Heritance shutters bring a classic look to any space.
