05.01.2023 . 2 minutes read How To Bring Pantone's Colour of the Year 2023 Into Your Home When it comes to sprucing up your home for the new year, there's no better way to get into the spirit of 2023 than by embracing the most upcoming and forward-thinking colour (as defined by the experts). Every year, Pantone chooses a colour that they believe will become the defining hue of the upcoming twelve months. Last year, Very Peri was the star. In 2023, Pantone's Colour of the Year is Viva Magenta. Viva Magenta is a powerful, eye-catching jewel tone that Pantone describes as “an unconventional shade for an unconventional time”. In the interior design world, it’s a warming shade we expect to see popping up in the homes of the most in-the-now home decor enthusiasts, and you can do it too. Embrace Pantone’s empowering Colour of the Year 2023 in your space to bring some bold expression and a new lease of life into your home. Here are 5 stylish ways to do it. 1. Magenta sofa essentials By far the easiest way to introduce a new colour to your home is through soft furnishings. Plush cushions and fluffy throws add much-needed warmth to living spaces and they also allow you to experiment with new colour schemes without committing to a whole new look. To embrace Pantone's Colour of the Year 2023 in your home, why not introduce some warming red and pink shades to your sofa? Decorate with bold cushions that add a splash of magenta, like this glamorous Paradise Velvet Cushion. 2. Magenta rugs Viva Magenta is a destructive shade that fits perfectly with bold additions to your home decor. Bring some of the expressive shade into your home by introducing luxurious rugs and runners, like this show-stopping Plush Rug Bold in Red. Perfect for the winter months, this soft rug adds warmth, elegance and a pop of the all-important Viva Magenta to ensure your space stays at the forefront of home decor trends. Or, explore our full flooring department for runners that will elevate your stairway. 3. Iconic furniture pieces If you’ve already fallen in love with Viva Magenta and you’re looking for a way to embrace it in your living space, statement furniture pieces will certainly do the trick.

Made to order and designed for the ultimate comfort experience, this iconic armchair is an elegant and practical embodiment of Pantone's Colour of the Year 2023. 4. Your magenta feature wall Get your paint brushes out, you’ve got a new colour to inspire your feature wall. Viva Magenta is a powerful and welcoming shade. If it fits with the look and feel of your home, it also makes an impressive feature wall. If you have a neutral room that’s looking for an exciting injection of life and colour, Viva Magenta might be just what you need. 5. Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise If redecorating your home or adding bold new furniture pieces is too big a step at this stage, fear not: there are far less permanent ways to try out Pantone's Colour of the Year in your space in 2023. To incorporate a touch of Viva Magenta, embrace subtle accessories in your home that give you a fresh pop of colour.
