What are the new decorating colors for 2023?

Wondering what colors will be trending for home decor in 2023? Here are the new decorating colors for 2023, as predicted by the experts!

Trends change quickly and that is super true is home decor.

Decorating trends come and go. And, while I like to have a timeless feeling home, it can be nice to pull in some interior design trends to keep your space feeling fresh.

If you are bold, you can go all in on the hottest colors. but, most people will stick to neutrals!

Decorating with neutral colors gives you the option to bring in the color trends for 2023 and then bring in new colors the next year, too.

Check out all of my predicted interior design trends for 2023!

How to use trending colors

You might not want to redesign your home every year, but you can definitely pull the hot colors for the year in as accent colors. This makes a space feel fresh for little effort.

Accents could be used for:

  • Accent walls (painted or wallpaper)
  • Pillows or throw blankets
  • Secondary colors in rugs or other patterned textiles
  • Color palette for art and wall art

My overall predictions for interior paint colors for 2023

2022 was all about warm neutrals. As we head into 2023, I predict that we keep those warm shades but go into more vibrant colors.

Now, that doesn’t mean neon. These colors will still be muted, so they feel modern, but have a lot of color and pigment to them.

Muted colors have gray mixed in with them to keep the color itself from feeling too bright or in your face.

In general, warm tones are on trend, so these colors are mostly muted with a greige or beige color mixed in.

Accent colors for 2023

I think that sage green is the perfect accent color for 2023. Look for something dusty – with a lot of gray undertones – so it feels earthy but not at all bright or neon.

Expect to see a lot of rust or terra cotta as well. Terra cotta and sage green are opposite each other in the color wheel and therefore accent each other quite nicely.

Purple will also be on trend. Very Peri was the Pantone color of 2022, and experts are expecting all shades of purple – including pastels – to continue to be popular. Purples tend to pair well with gold, yellow, orange, and green.

Pantone has named Viva Magenta their 2023 color of the year. This is a BRIGHT, dark red color. It verges on pink but reads a bit more red due to its color depth.

This color is obviously a bit much to paint your whole home, and is best used for accents and decor. Expect to see magenta home accessories – including pillows, lamps, textiles, and art – popping up at your favorite stores this year.
