Interior colour trends for 2023 Posted: 31st December 2022

Interior colour trends for 2023

As estate agents, we understand that your home is a place of self expression, a place where you set the rules. However we also realise that when it comes to interior design, some of us need to draw inspiration from others.

That is why we have chosen to highlight the Pantone colour of the year 2023, digital lavender, along with some other colour palettes showcased at design shows over the past year.

Earthy tones and neutrals will always have their place, however there are some bold choices to explore for those brave enough. Browse through our top picks below and give your home interiors a fresh new look.

It’s entirely down to you whether you implement them though your home furnishings and accessories or with a fresh lick of paint.

Digital Lavender – Pantone colour of the year 2023

The most documented of colour trends for 2023, Pantone’s choice of Digital Lavender is a soft and subtle pastel purple which features a slight tint of blue. Said to promote both a cheerful mood and relaxing living atmosphere at the same time, this gender neutral colour choice can be used in a multitude of applications.

Raspberry Blush – colour of the year 2023

By contrast, you then also have the statement of Raspberry Blush as one of this year’s top contenders.

Spanish Moss – colour of the year 2023

And finally, we would like to introduce Spanish Moss – a unique blend of blue and green, used to create this rich and pulsating colour.

A real mood setter, this darker nature inspired colour palette has an organic feel when introduced to your home.

Calming in a sense, it can be easily styled to suit industrial and modern home tastes.

What room of my home can I use it in? Bedrooms, bathrooms and home offices.
