As the year comes to a close, people are making resolutions, looking forward to the next year, and maybe planning home improvement projects. Companies are also reviewing the year, looking at what’s trending in art, clothes, fabrics, travel, and entertainment, and choosing a color or colors to represent the upcoming year. After reviewing companies and trends, we present the Colors of the Year for 2023!


Behr’s Color of the Year for 2023 is Blank Canvas. After the last few years, we’ve had thoughts turn to new starts, along with getting out and doing more. Blank Canvas is a darker white color with a warm tone which can be a great base from which to build your new look on. This color pairs well with many other colors, so your look can be tailored to anything your heart desires. While some whites can be bright or feel clinical, Blank Canvas, with its warm tones, can create a cozy look for your room.

Benjamin Moore

Adding a splash of color to 2023 is Benjamin Moore’s Raspberry Blush. Raspberry Blush can be described as coral color mixed with a dash of pink. This color can add vibrancy to any room that you use it in. This can be used to create a statement wall or create an updated look for a room in your home. The color can be used for trim, ceilings, or for a bold look over the walls or for a door. Benjamin Moore also makes it easy to combine Raspberry Blush with other colors by offering a Color Trends palette for 2023. Colors such as Cinnamon, Savannah Green, and Starry Night Blue are some of the 11 coordinating colors.

Better Homes & Gardens

The Better Homes & Gardens Color of the Year for 2023 is Canyon Ridge. Canyon Ridge gives off a terra cotta vibe with a nature feel. The thoughts lean towards desert environments and coral hues. This neutral style color pairs well with most other colors, making it very versatile. This can be great when you are pulling together your room with either bold spaces, i.e., walls and large areas, or through the use of accessories, i.e., pillows, throws, and area rugs.

Reviewing all the Colors of the Year is a great way to begin your creative process to change up your space. You can play by putting different colors together, consider using different mediums to showcase the colors and update the rooms of your home in small and big ways.
