Viva Magenta, a brave hue will breathe new life into your home’s colour palette.
The Pantone Colour Of The Year is more than just a trend-setting shade that will soon be incorporated into everything from fashion to food to home decor and beyond- it signifies the moment we are in. When selecting the Pantone Colour of the Year 2023, Viva Magenta 18-1750, a bold shade of crimson red, the experts not only evaluated the latest trends in the design world, but also the spirit of the times we live in. The crimson red symbolises power and strength, at the same time, it promotes joy, optimism and enthusiasm.
Bright shades like magenta make for fun additions to the home. Whether you are adding a pop of colour to an existing scheme or brightening up a room with an accent wall, introducing a deep pink to your home makes for a whimsical and cheerful vibe.
“This year’s Colour of The Year is powerful and empowering. It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement,” according to Pantone.

Viva Magenta in Interiors And Homes
This bold hue can work well in many colour palettes. The minimalists who prefer natural tones can use it as a pop of colour since this hue packs a lot of drama in a small dose. Apart from the walls, it can also be incorporated as a lighting fixture, artwork, rugs or a striking floral arrangement punctuating an all-neutral space.
When it comes to colour pairing, Viva Magenta works well with pale greys, blues, or pastels. Or, if you wish to try out the monochromatic trend, you can combine it with other pinks that command the room!
How To Decorate With Pantone Color of The Year 2023
1. Add Drama With Viva Magenta As An Accent
This dramatic hue will directly impact paint trends and urge homeowners to be more daring in their choices. It brings a wonderful opportunity to add some style into a space as an accent. Whether it is in the entryway or guest bathroom or used on wooden furniture or within the pattern of a fabric, it brings instant drama and warmth.
2. Go Bold And Try Colour Drenching
While it is a good idea to pair a statement shade like Viva Magenta with soothing neutrals and earthy palettes, you can also use colour drenching to maximise its effect. Colour drenching is the process of choosing one colour and painting it on multiple surfaces in one space. The end result is brilliantly bold and modern, adding to a fearless aesthetic.
3. Create A Focal Point With Viva Magenta
If you are looking to add some drama to your space, why not consider Viva Magenta? You can use it on the walls or fitted furniture to create a focal point in a room. It will immediately lift a neutral palette, without it looking brash.
