Every year colour experts from the design field and from leading paint manufacturers chose their Colour of the Year and publish their Colour Forecast. Frequently the main trending colour is accompanied by a colour palette with hues to perfectly compliment the Colour of the Year.  
These trending colours don’t only show up as paint colours for our homes, but they are visible in all the creative industries from fashion to interiors, and from graphic design to technology. For 2023 we see richer colour tones compared to 2022, but we continue to get a lot of colour inspiration from nature.

Viva Magenta

Pantone has chosen Viva Magenta as their colour of the year. Viva Magenta is a bold pink shade described as brave and fearless. Part of the red colour family this bold shade expresses vivacity and strength, and adds a shot of something to any interior scheme.

If this colour trend appeals to you We have a range of bedding and accessories in a various bold shades of pink – from coral to fucsia. Adding a throw or cushion in magenta is a quick way to add a shot of colour this fashionable shade without making a long-term commitment.
Tip: Add bedding or painted furniture in a more muted, neutral pink – it will tone well with the magenta, but also work brilliantly as a base for lots of other colours too.
