When you think about the traditional spring color palette, it may look something like an Easter basket: pale pinks, light yellows, and soft blues galore. These low-saturation pastel hues have been quintessential spring colors, but spring 2023 color trends are packing a bit more punch. Bright, vivid, bold colors – highly saturated, referred to by some as “dopamine colors” – are popping up everywhere. Learn about some of this season’s most popular bright colors as well as some high-commitment and low-commitment suggestions for incorporating them into your home.
A deep, saturated shade of orange bordering on red, blood orange is a bold and fun color to bring into your living space this spring and summer. Orange is associated with excitement and energy; using this hue can bring a drab space back to life.
Try this: Paint an accent wall!
Want to really commit to the bold color palette? Paint a single accent wall in your home in this gorgeous color to brighten the space without feeling overwhelmed. If you’re renting, you can get the same effect with peel-and-stick wallpaper. Even if you own your home, peel-and-stick wallpaper is a great way to try a new color without breaking out the paintbrush!
The 2023 Color of the Year, Viva Magenta is described by the Pantone Color Institute as a “nuanced crimson red tone that presents a balance between warm and cool.” The color of the year is based on what the Pantone experts have seen in fashion trends and 2023 runways – and, maybe soon, your home.
Try this: Incorporate a piece of “statement” furniture.
Modernize and liven up your space by adding a piece of furniture in Viva Magenta, like an accent chair, console table, or even a stately sectional if you’re more daring! If you want to experiment with the color without leaning into it that fully, you can try it in smaller doses: add Viva Magenta knobs to your dresser or paint the inside of your bookshelf in the shade.
If you’re not quite ready for a long-term relationship with Viva Magenta (or any of these 2023 color trends), consider renting your furniture instead. At CORT Furniture Rental, you can find stylish and quality rental furniture and decor for the whole home, so you can enjoy these trends without commitment.
The color turquoise is associated with tranquility and peace of mind, so naturally, it has to be included in this “feel good” dopamine color palette. Decorate your home in turquoise; you can create that fun pop of color and a soothing space of calmness.
Try this: Dress up your couch with colorful throw pillows or hang vibrant window treatments.
Add turquoise or other vibrant shades of blue to your home with throw pillows, blankets, and eye-catching window treatments. These can greatly impact your space but can be easily swapped out when your tastes (and trends) evolve.
Yellow is associated with optimism and originality, but most people don’t often consider decorating their homes with bright shades like a neon hue. Integrating a pop (or three) of this striking color into your home gives you sunshine on any cloudy day.
Try this: Hang a bold piece of wall art.
Brighten a bare wall with an exciting and perfectly conspicuous piece of neon yellow artwork. Find a print that showcases the color, or go big with a true neon sign!
Bright Pink or Fuchsia
One of the most exciting fashion color trends in 2023, in addition to general “dopamine dressing,” is known as Barbiecore – embracing all things pink. You don’t have to turn your home into Barbie’s Dream House, but incorporating the color associated with love and femininity into your home can soften up any room.
Try this: Decorate the space with bright accessories.
Rather than pulling out a paintbrush or investing in a plush pink loveseat, bring the color into your room through fun accessories. Simple decor items can highlight a hot pink palette without becoming “too much.” Think rugs, lamps, vases, and even houseplants in the lovely hue!
