Red Coral Pink Walls

Benjamin Moore

Last year, in 2022, 4 major paint companies selected similar shades of misty green.  It felt very peaceful with a return to nature. (We talked about here.)  And while we’re still seeing deeper varieties of green going strong, 2023 is looking a lot more vibrant and optimistic.

Our go-to paint brand Benjamin Moore has released their latest Color Trend Forecast for 2023.  And the star of the year is Raspberry Blush, a bright blend of coral and red.  Exciting, happy and fun!

Ways to Incorporate 2023 Color Trends Into Your Home

Whether you’re looking to transform your space with a big purchase, or just want a touch here and there to switch things up, here are ways to bring in a new color:


  • Paint

    Painting the Entire Room, Ceiling or an Accent Wall makes a big difference to any room.  The Front Door to your home is also a great way to change the look of the house.  Working with paint is one of the easiest, most affordable and biggest ways to transform a space.

  • Cabinetry and Casegoods
    (Built In Bookshelf, Floating Shelves, Kitchen Cabinets, Bathroom Vanity, Night Stands, Dresser, Side Tables)
  • Upholstery
    (Sofa, Side Chair, Bench Cushion, Headboard)
  • Wallpaper

    (Walls, Accent Wall, Ceiling, Bookshelves, Cabinet Doors)

  • Tile
    (Flooring, Kitchen Backsplash, Bathroom Floor, Vanity and Shower Walls, Patio)
  • Bedding and Bath
    (Duvet, Sheets, Pillows, Towels, Bathmat, Throw Blanket)
  • Pillows and Rugs
    (On Sofa, Chair, Bed, Window Seat, Area Rugs or Runners)
  • Drapery
    (As a Solid or Pattern)
  • Lighting
    (Electronic Light Fixture, Lamp, Lampshade)
  • Art and Accessories


Before you head out searching for something to buy, shop at home first.  Move things around.  Look in every room, on every bookshelf (maybe even a book cover), in every cupboard and cabinet to find inspiration.  You might be surprised at what you find.

Benjamin Moore Introduces Color Trends 2023 Palette

We love how Benjamin Moore worked with electro-funk duo Chromeo to present the 2023 color palette, performed room by room by a beautifully expressive dancer.  

They’ve even created a Spotify Playlist for every color that perfectly matches the mood of each shade.

2023 COLOR TREND: Raspberry Blush

Raspberry Blush is an eye-catching bright pink with a touch of coral.  Uplifting, exciting, optimistic.

If you’re feeling daring, paint the Living Room, Dining Room Powder Room.  For a great first impression and blast of good luck, paint the front door.

TIPS:  Avoid bedrooms as red adds heightened energy rather than encourages relaxation.

2023 COLOR TREND: Conch Shell

Conch Shell feels similar to a blush Millennial Pink but more grown up, with a natural dusty clay undertone.  Pair with dark greens, deep earthy browns or charcoal black to feel modern and grounded.  This shade is perfect for Bedrooms or Dining Rooms because peach reflects beautifully on everyone’s face, especially in dimly lit rooms.

2023 COLOR TREND: Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a perfect neutral that pairs well with everything.  We’re seeing less grey and more warm browns, which feel comforting, grounding and earthy.  In fact, to warm up a heavily grey space, add some depth with a finish in brown.  A medium brown is of course great for flooring, furniture and cabinetry, but also looks fantastic on the walls of a Living Room, Bathroom or Bedroom.

2023 COLOR TREND: Wenge

Wenge is deep, dark and dramatic. Talk about delicious and rich!  A chocolatey brown is almost black, with a hint of violet.  A perfectly sexy shade that amps up any room, especially a Home Bar, Lounge or a Powder Room.  This is your new dark neutral that plays well with any color.

2023 COLOR TREND: New Age

New Age makes us feel very Zen.  As an airy light purple, similar to Pantone’s Color of the Year 2022, Veri Peri, this dusty lilac has a warm grey undertone.  To instantly make any room feel strikingly fresh and modern, pair next to bronze, deep browns, green or burled wood.

2023 COLOR TREND: North Sea Green

North Sea Green might feel similar to 2021 color of the year Aegean Teal.  But this shade of blue green is less muted and much more vibrant.  Add this shade to more than just walls and use it in wallpaper, drapery and bathroom tiles.
