Viva Magenta: A Vibrant Color for the Year 2023

Each winter, the design world looks forward to the release of Pantone’s color announcement. The Color of the Year 2023 is sure to be used by designers, both fashion and interior, and homeowners alike. Viva Magenta is here folks! And she came in with a bang! The vibrant, cheery, youthful color will liven up any space. We can’t wait to show you some of our favorite ways to implement it in your own home.


Color of the Year 2023: Viva Magenta is Here

Prior to picking out the ONE color of the year that will lead all sorts of design trends, Pantone releases a palette of colors that range from soft neutrals to bold hues like Viva Magenta. We knew to expect something exciting after seeing that fall palette of choices. Whether you’re looking to revamp an entire space, simply pull in a springy color while awaiting the warmer months, or make a statement in your home, this red-pink hue is a great go to.

The Heart of the Home

For years now, kitchens and bathrooms have been known to be some of the most neutral of spaces. One trend we have been all over is adding color back into kitchens! After all, this is the heart of the home, why not add some warmth and liveliness? Now this doesn’t mean you have to go all in and paint your cabinets pink… But if that’s a project calling your name, go for it! And if you’re not quite ready to dive all the way in, but rather want to dip your toe in the water, smaller projects can make a big impact too.

Switching out light fixtures, shades, or adding colorful countertop appliances are all smaller ways you can add extra personality to your kitchen. One way to test the waters with a new color is to pick a few accent pieces. Just look at these retro-looking appliances and how they brighten the space without making any permanent changes!

Liven Up Your Bathroom

We already mentioned that bathrooms are an often neutral space, and sometimes they’re even the last room to get any design attention. For many homeowners, the bathroom is where you spend the first minutes of your morning getting ready for the day. Adding wallpaper, a fun backsplash, or colorful accents are all wonderful ways to brighten up the space and start your day out on a joyful, energetic note.

Accent Furniture

Red furniture, artwork, and rugs are all pieces we often see in different spaces as an accent color. Viva Magenta takes that classic red and puts a modern spin on it. In some lights it pulls more red tones, in others it has a pink, almost purple hue to it. These chairs take an otherwise neutral room and add in the vibrant Viva Magenta to elevate the entire space and leave the home feeling refreshed.
