Leaning toward more uplifting hues and invigorating shades, whether that’s a cheerful color scheme made up of candy colors or somber tones derived from nature.
We anticipate a surge in warmer, cozier hues such as rich browns and coffee-tinged creams, as well as earthy reds and terracotta tones since people are feeling free and less bound by traditional neutrals like greys and off-whites.
We’re looking at the Living room color trends that we’re excited about:
- Rich Neutrals
- Restful Blues
- Pale Purple
- Grounding Green
- Muted Pastels
- Uplifting Orange
- Cool and Warm
1. Rich Neutrals
Knut Bendik Humlevik, design director at New Works, predicts that we will see more of these deeper neutral tones. “Rich brown hues, smooth creamy shades, and greenish-grey elements create a sophisticated and peaceful setting,” he adds.
Natural materials, tactile textures, and restrained color palettes are central to the Danish brand’s ethos, which is reflected in both their designs and the environments they provide.
2. Restful Blues
“The rebirth of dark colors continues with vigor and will go on into our decorating repertoire through 2023 and beyond,” says Patrick O’Donnell, color consultant for Farrow & Ball. “Have we grown more courageous?” Or do we comprehend that dark hues are frequently a suitable choice for dimly illuminated areas? he wonders.
3. Pale Purple
Expect to see more iterations of this calming color making their way into fashion and interior design as trend forecasting authority WGSN, in partnership with Coloro, chose Digital Lavender their color of the year for 2023.
If you like the color pale purple but are unsure of how to incorporate it into your home, get ideas from Simone Haag’s chic example.
4. Grounding Green
Deniz Bayern, the founder of Studio Kaya, claims that there is something particularly beautiful about colors that is difficult to put into words. Castle Grey by Farrow & Ball(opens in new tab), which I used in my living room, is one of them. Throughout the day, depending on the light, it shifts from a blueish grey to dark, muddy green.
5. Muted Pastels
Pastel colors are upbeat and comforting, and they will continue to appear in living areas in 2023. Unsurprisingly, we are also seeing them in bedroom themes. Why not seek subdued, more “grown-up” choices instead, if a palette of sweet colors feels a little out of your comfort zone?
6. Uplifting Orange
In 2023, orange appears poised to continue its resurgence, whether it is bright and vibrant or in more subdued, terracotta tones. Go brighter for a nostalgic nod to 1970s style, or choose softer hues for a more understated look.
7. Cool and Warm
Are you trying to modernize a house with pink walls? Lavender, the ‘it’ color for paint trends in 2023, might be used as a splash. Siri Zanelli, a partner at Collective Works, and Dagny Thurmann Moe, of Koi Color Studio, worked together to create the color scheme for this Victorian house.
