Earlier this month, Pantone announced the 2023 colour of the year – Viva Magenta. Every year Pantone picks a colour representing the year, and according to them, Viva Magenta 18-750, vibrates with vim and vigour. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, a pulsating colour whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.”
A striking reddish pink, the colour perfectly complements the festive season. And if you’re thinking about sprucing up your interiors with a pop of colour for the New Year and set a new tone, then take a look at some of our favourite picks in this year’s Pantone shade.
