Pantone's Color of the Year: Viva Magenta

At Perennials we’re proud of our impeccably timeless designs that will endure for years to come. Because let’s be honest, a luscious velvet quality or classic pinstripe will never go out of style. Yet with that in mind, we love to keep tabs on design trends and popular styles that clients are flocking to. Today we tackle Pantone’s 2023 Color of Year: Viva Magenta

T’is the season for 2023 trend forecasting! From kitchen trends to bedroom trends, the design industry loves to predict what might be BIG for the next year. Cue every paint brand telling consumer what paints will dominate 2023. The authority on all things color, Pantone, released their 2023 Color of the Year: Viva Magenta! “In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute. “PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known.” Discover Perennials favorites that incorporate this vibrant hue.

Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.
