Coral, terracotta, reds and red-orange, inky blues, intriguing teals, and citrusy greens. These colors captured Benjamin Moore Color Hunters’ attention during theirs color pallet for the next season. This time they were drawn to the upbeat energy and vivid quality of these clean, saturated hues through examples of these colors being used in very successful and inspiring ways.
The images shown beside were collected through Color Team travels and various points of inspiration that grabbed Color Hunters’ attention as they researched color for 2023.
As they put the pieces together they found 2023 to be the right time to highlight bolder hues that communicate the joy and exuberance that color delivers. For 2023, we are finally ready to bravely dive into color. We are taking inspiration from spaces drenched in color, pushing us beyond our comfort zones.
Back in the winter, at an early stage in choosing color trends, Andrea Magno, Color Marketing and Development Director, invited two dogs (Bode and Will)to the project while working with her Color Team online. Of course, on the "in-game" table, you can still see many color possibilities. Over time, the strict selection narrowed the range of colors sharply.
The Color Trends 2023 palette has a distinct presence and personality, with stand-alone colors that each make a brave color statement that is sure to stand out.
Each of these confident hues offer inspiration and creativity, while encouraging a push beyond the traditional to experience truly exceptional color. These sumptuous colors were inspired by the bold strokes of modern art, the myriad of bold colors in nature, and the desire to express ourselves through color.
For 2023, we are looking ahead to bring vitality and individuality to your space while embracing the transformative power of paint.
To further guide our customers in taking the step to use bolder colors, we’ve included a selection of four neutrals to provide guidance on how to pair these colors: black “Onyx 2133-10”, “White Heron OC-57”, “Gray Owl OC-52” from „Off-whites” collection and warm gray “Etiquette AF-50” from Affinity palette.
While the 8 colors of the Color Trends palette serve as the main event, our well-loved neutrals help to being these expressive colors to life.
