Liven Up Your Space with Viva Magenta: Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year

Interior designers were a-buzz when the Pantone Institute announced Viva Magenta, a bold shade of red with pink undertones, as its 2023 Color of the Year. This hue injects a sense of power, optimism – and even a little playfulness–into the spaces it occupies. It’s the perfect color to infuse energy into tired, drab rooms. Read on for ideas on how to incorporate this color into your apartment!

Because of its vibrancy, magenta works wonderfully in a room of otherwise subtle colors. Various shades of whites, creams, grays, pale greens, and blues all compliment a magenta focal piece like a chair or couch. This magenta sofa from goes perfectly with floral pillows but would do just as well with subtle solid colors in your Singh Apartment living room. Not ready to be so bold? Magenta lamps, blankets or wall art also make lively additions!

Another well-loved approach to magenta is pairing it with other jewel tones. These include reds, oranges, purples, blues, and greens, all with similarly rich hues. Or, find accent pieces that shimmer like gems, and your space will feel rich and joyful.
