Some people like choosing interior painting services according to the latest homeware fashions and trends, whereas others like to choose a fashionable shade that will go the distance – lasting a few years.
So when it comes to choosing paint for your home or even your workspace, it’s worth thinking about the fashion colours that will still look great in a few years’ time.
With that in mind, this piece focusses on the colour trends for Winter/Spring 2023 especially targeting the colours we believe will look just as good today as they will in 5 years’ time.
Hopefully, if you’re thinking about redecorating and pondering your shades, this piece will help you to make a decision.
Of course, if you need help with your interior painting, Toronto project , and looking for a painter, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the experts at Paint Club, we can also advise on the best colours for your space.
One of the biggest colours coming through at the moment is Raspberry Blush. It’s a deep, pinkish red with brown and coral undertones that would work really well for living areas and dining areas as it’s warm and inviting. It could also work perfectly for a guest toilet or guest bathroom.
If you like strong colours, then this could be ideal for you as it’s dramatic without being overpowering. You could choose to pair it with neutral accessories to tone it down, if you wish.
The Raspberry Blush shade is from Benjamin Moore – and there are many other colours from the same company that complement this shade so you can add accent colours or a paler or deeper shade.
There’s bound to be something in this collection that you’ll adore. If you love the idea of colour but you don’t want to paint an entire room in Raspberry Blush, you might want to consider a feature wall to draw the eye.
This would be fantastic for a smaller room, where you need to let in light, but you want a pop of colour. As another tip, add a mirror to a wall to give the illusion of bigger space.
To blend your Raspberry Blush with another colour or to ensure that your theme flows through to other areas in your home or office space, we’d recommend pairing it with Tofino Sunset, a neutral with a slightly pinkish undertone, Cinnamon which is a red/brown shade, Wenge (a dark, rich chocolatey brown) or if you like earthy colours, try Savannah Green.
More on some of these shades below.
Blue and grey is still in fashion and grey is fantastic for opening up small spaces and bringing in light.
One of the newest colours from Benjamin Moore is New Age which is a warm grey that tones perfectly with Starry Night Blue, a jewel-toned blue that’s ideal for accent walls, archways or if you have a large space, be dramatic and envelop your room in this dazzling shade!
Greens go well with grey and they also pair with blues beautifully so long as you get the tone right. North Sea Green is another new colour that’s set to be trendy for 2023 and works nicely with Starry Night Blue as well as the New Age Grey – both mentioned above.
Greens lend themselves well to kitchens and bathrooms as they’re restful and peaceful shades, but they also look fantastic in living areas, especially if you like to add real greenery with some plants for textural interest.
Wenge is one of our favourite colours for Autumn/Winter 2023. It’s an intense, deep chocolate brown that’s almost black. While we adore this colour, we’d suggest that if you have a small space, you only use it sparingly as it will overpower.
However, as an accent wall or for trims, it’s very handsome. A large, generous space could cope well with Wenge on walls as long as you accessorise with paler neutrals to balance the dark colour.
You could also use Wenge just on doors – there’s something so smart and sophisticated about having dark doors in your home or office! Wenge isn’t just suited to indoor rooms, it’s ideal for outdoor paint too and if you have a dark kitchen, you might want to use it on one, feature wall.
Cinnamon is a spice but it’s also a fabulous colour that injects just the right amount of warmth and fun into a room! An orangey-brown, tone it with Wenge above or use it with paler neutrals.
If you love colour but you’re wary of going too dramatic, Cinnamon is a good middle-ground. It will bring your rooms alive without overpowering and can be used in generously sized rooms as well as small spaces.
Cinnamon is one of those shades that can be used in a multitude of rooms, from interesting bedrooms (as it’s not too bold) to living rooms and even kitchens. If you like a warm entrance hall, Cinnamon is ideal.
