Pantone has announced that Viva Magenta (18-1750) is its color of the year for 2023. Pantone has described this color as “boundaryless”, “electrifying”, and “rebellious”. It is intended to reflect “inner strength”, “the courage to change the status quo”, and the ability to be accepted for who we are. While we’re already seeing this color pop up in technology, incorporating magenta into your home decor can also be a great way to give yourself a subconscious boost of courage and energy throughout the day.
Below are some of our favorite magenta home decor products.

5. Abstract Blooming Flowers Oil Painting
Art is also a good way to bring magenta into your home. As Pantone pointed out in their Color of the Year announcement, magenta is derived from flowers in nature.

Sometimes artists will let you make color requests if the piece isn’t completed, so if this doesn’t have enough magenta – maybe ask for more?
