Using Pantone 2023 Colors in Your Home

Pantone recently announced the 2023 Color of the Year–Viva Magenta–a vibrant crimson hue that they describe as, “an unconventional shade for an unconventional time”. There’s no doubt that you’ll see this shade dominating the runways in the new year, but there’s also plenty of opportunity to be inspired by Viva Magenta in your home as well.  Continue reading below as we give you some of the top tips and suggestions for using Pantone’s Viva Magenta in interior design. 

Throw Pillows, Blankets & Textiles

Viva Magenta is a bright and uplifting shade that evokes feelings of playfulness and creativity. And because of its strong vibrancy, you may want to take the “less is more” approach with this color. So if you want a simple way to incorporate Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year into any space in your home, introduce it through the use of textiles like pillow covers, blankets, curtains, and more. This gives a great pop of color to a kid’s bedroom, home office, or dining room–without overwhelming the space. 

Wall Paint

On the other hand, those who want to make a bold statement in their home with Viva Magenta next year can paint an accent wall or full room with this shade. In doing so, drenching your bedroom, home office, or reading nook in Viva Magenta will create a warm and intimate space that feels cozy and inviting. This may darken a room quite a bit, so make sure to keep the rest of your decor light and airy, like with crisp whites and other neutrals to create balance. 


Another simple method of adding Viva Magenta into your home in the new year is to hang up artwork with this shade as a prominent feature. You can easily find artwork online that you can print off and frame or visit your local home goods store to find a piece that speaks to you. After all, Viva Magenta is a highly unique and fun color to work with, which makes artwork a great way to inject the shade into any room in your home. 

Floral Arrangements

Incorporating Viva Magenta into your home’s interior can be refreshing and inspiring through the addition of floral arrangements. There are many flowers that feature a similar shade to Viva Magenta, like carnations, lilies, roses, and more. Plus, flower bouquets dress up a room and create a simple way to add an air of elegance and sophistication to the space–while still featuring Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year. As you can see, there are plenty of ways to infuse Viva Magenta into your home next year to stay with the trends and give your home a refreshing feel with lively decor in this fun and playful color.
