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.
WHAT ARE THE POPULAR COLORS FOR 2023?
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!

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.
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: Savannah Green
Savannah Green is where we see a mix of Modern and Vintage in any style. With a blend of green and yellow, this mustard ochre works well as a pop of color. Contrast with a cooler deep teal or dark browns.

Starry Night Blue is always a classic and often considered a neutral. This navy blue goes great on everything, whether it’s walls and cabinetry, upholstered furniture or linens. Blues pair beautifully with greens, rich browns, china white or pops of gold or coral.
