How the Colors of the Year Have Changed Over Time
Last year, Pantone announced their 2023 Color of the Year as Viva Magenta. This bright and vibrant red represented strength and a lust for life. It was bold and refreshing compared to previous years.
In the past, the focus seemed to be on warm and earthy tones, with colors like Benjamin Moore's "October Mist" and PPG's "Olive Sprig" which turned homes into a comforting retreat during and after challenging times during the pandemic.
In 2023, there was a heightened appreciation and awareness of nature, as more and more people were bringing plants and fresh florals into their homes. The end of the pandemic also led to a renewed enjoyment of outdoor recreation and travel.
The Power of Color and Why It Matters
Color Marketing Group conducts international color consortiums to predict the color palettes for the upcoming year, offering valuable insights to designers and manufacturers. This group suggests that color can influence buying decisions by as much as 85%, highlighting the importance of color choices in marketing and design.
KISSmetrics' infographic, "How Do Colors Affect Purchases," support these findings, further underlining the role of color in shaping consumer choices.
Pantone's Color of the Year for 2023 holds psychological and emotional significance, symbolizing a balance between boldness, confidence, and humanity.
Viva Magenta served as a symbol of power and grace, encapsulating the need for healing and motivation amid the ongoing challenges of the pandemic and current events. It empowered individuals and sent them out into the world with renewed strength and purpose.
This year, the trending colors are a blend of calming and cheerful colors, inspiring us to get creative with our home décor style. Let’s explore the best wallpaper to pair with the colors of the year.
