When it comes to choosing a wall paint color, you can’t go wrong with neutrals. But in 2023, we challenge you to go big with color. Adding a vibrant accent wall to your living room, giving your entryway a pop, or painting your dining room ceiling (!) a dramatic shade is just the creative refresh your space needs.

When you’re ready to bring more individuality to your home, look to the Benjamin Moore Color Trends palette for 2023. In addition to the main event — their Color of the Year for 2023, the coral-hued Raspberry Blush 2008-30 — there are seven others that will satiate your hunger for new hues. Here’s how to incorporate them into your space.

2. Conch Shell 052

Torn between keeping your space contemporary while staying true to your vintage style? Conch Shell 052 marries the best of both sensibilities. Add this dusty pink to the powder room, or paint it where you may have been tempted to try a neutral, such as a hallway.

3. Cinnamon 2174-20

If you’re a pinch on the color-cautious side, you’ll love Cinnamon 2174-20. This hue has all the fail-safe attributes of a neutral but brings an element of warmth with its subtle orange undertones. Infuse your common spaces with a kick of this spicy color for a cozy vibe.

4. Wenge AF-180

For a touch of sophistication, look to Wenge AF-180. This decadent chocolate brown has black and violet undertones that add a velvety touch to any space. To maximize the drama, paint your living room walls and ceiling with this rich hue.

5. Savannah Green

Welcome Savannah Green 2150-30, a verdant mix of moss and gold hues, to your creative spaces. Sure to make an earthy but bold statement as an accent wall in your office or art studio, it’s like adding a little bit of gold leaf to your walls.

6. New Age 144

A mysterious cocktail of gray and lavender, we’re not sure where we wouldn’t apply New Age 144. We’re painting reading nooks, accent walls, and nurseries with this ineffable hue, soft, light, and somewhere between neutral and mauve.

7. Starry Night Blue 2067-20

Starry Night Blue 2067-20 combines romantic purples and dusky grays into a dreamy hue that’s anything but basic. Use it as an unexpected twist on kitchen cabinetry or for breathing a sumptuous vibe into the boudoir.
