Pantone Colour of the year – to quote its creators – “brave, fearless and pulsating”. Viva Magenta is Pantone’s colour of 2023.

After 2020’s muted evening blue, the 2021 joint winner of pebble grey and hazard-warning yellow, and this year’s bright periwinkle hue, Pantone have settled on this bold shade of carmine red for 2023.

“It’s brave, it’s fearless, it depicts optimism and joy – and we know that we are all greatly in need of that,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute.


How will we see Colour in 2023?

This year’s Colour of the Year is powerful and empowering. It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundary-less shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement. 
Magenta is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family which expresses new signals of strength. Magenta is a pulsating colour which exuberates joy and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.


How to use the Pantone Colour of the Year 2023

Adding a Magenta to your interior walls is perfect for those looking to create interiors with impact. Whether it's used wall-to-wall or as an accent colour maybe even paired with wall panelling, being such a powerful shade, magenta can easily transform a space. 
While it may be a strong and confident choice, magenta is also versatile and can create a cosy, moody or romantic atmosphere, depending on the room.

How can it be paired?


Magenta is like the new black. It goes with just about anything. Pair it with pinks and creams for a natural, romantic look. Pair it with olives or deep greens and for a strong and rich feel. Or use it by itself to create a bold statement. Want to show that your brand is fun and outgoing? Pair it with light teal or pale orange.
