If you redecorated in recent years, you may have opted for the popular neutral tones that have dominated interior design. Think bright and airy decor with white walls, off-white rugs and neutral colors for sofas and chairs.
In today’ s world as we get back to enjoying life, neutral decor can seem a little too safe or even boring. A touch of vibrant color added to our home can give us that refreshed, optimistic look that seems so fitting right now.
Colors of the Year
Incorporating more vibrant colors in your home decor can make your interior appear more on-trend in 2023.
When you think about updating your neutral decor, you should know that the Pantone Color of the Year for 2023 is Viva Magenta. Officially known as PANTONE 18-1750, Viva Magenta “vibrates with vim and vigor”, giving us an optimistic outlook and a celebratory feeling, according to Pantone. Viva Magenta and other vibrant colors seem especially fitting for our post-pandemic lives.
Pantone invites us to explore the “Magentaverse” of more neutral complementary colors that go along with Viva Magenta – three greenish tones, pale pink, light blue, sandy beige and muted lilac. Some predicted that Pantone’s new Color of the Year would be Digital Lavender, an attractive pastel tone designed to infuse a sense of serenity and stability. The choice of the livelier Viva Magenta reflects a more joyous mood as we emerge from lockdowns and COVID restrictions.
Add a Touch of Color
While there is a movement toward over-the-top maximalism with an array of colors and a profusion of belongings, you may want to keep the elegance of a neutral home and then add some sophisticated colorful touches. It makes sense to keep the major pieces like sofasand tables neutral and add vibrant color with accents that can be switched up as often as you like.
A colorful blanket can add texture and style when it is casually arrayed over the back of a living room sofa, and throw pillows are an easy way to integrate color into a neutral room. Accent chairs and accent rugs can add style and help define living areas in large spaces like a great room.
