Pantone Colour of The Year: Viva Magneta

Every year, Pantone online inspires homeowners across the country with their colour of the year. The selected colour is determined through studying certain influences in society including design, fashion, brand marketing, and more!

For 2023, the Pantone Color Institute announced Viva Magenta 18-750 as the colour of the year. A colour not associated with nature at first glance, Viva Magenta 18-750 is a colour rooted in nature itself. This colour was selected to represent the continued appreciation and acknowledgement of our natural world, particularly climate change, sustainability, and land protection. Here’s how you can incorporate this colour of the year into your home, with some simple upgrades.

New Couch

The new year is a perfect time to make a change. If you’re tired of your classic black or beige colour couch, or tired of rotating through simple, neutral coloured couches year over year, try incorporating a modern victorian style into your home. A velvet, Viva Magenta modern victorian style couch is perfect for any gathering room and is sure to make a statement in your home.

Accent Wall

If you’re not wanting to commit to too much Viva Magenta, playing with the colour throughout your home is as simple as adding throw pillows in your living room, blankets in your bedroom, and new pots in your kitchen. With the colour scattered throughout the home it creates a sense of unity and flow – just like that found in nature.

A great subtle way to incorporate the colour of the year into your home is through a centerpiece. This can range from a vase of flowers on the table or a piece of wall art. The great thing about a centerpiece is that you can express yourself through it. Find something that suits your home and personal style and be proud to show it off.
